I've made Edwort's Apfelwein a few times with 2# of plain sugar. I'm going to make 2# of the Light Amber (270F) sugar this time and see how it turns out.

The post #1 listed 30 days of secondary so I assume that's how long the beer was in contact with the oak.

I meant that that concept and title of the thread was very similar, English base malt + candi sugar. I've thought about the 1800 but ditch the plans when I calculate the cost of all those hops.
