  • Posted in thread: Mayple syrup and beer on 04-26-2013 at 03:56 PM
    I've played around with maple syrup quite a bit. You can either put it in at flameout (or with
    5 minutes left), or in the primary at the tail end of fermentation. Some might question the

    Thanks rexbanner. Is there any prevailing opinion whether Roselare should be pitched on top of
    S. Cerevisea, or racked then pitched? (Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere...I'm new here

    I'm in mid-fermentation of a 1.070 Dubbel using Wyeast 1388. It's a 15 gallon batch in three
