Since Maple Syrup is a bajillion percent sugar, it seems that very little flavor remains after the yeast have had their say. I've primed with it before and not only did it produce crappy...

Just a quick update. It's been about a year and 4 months since I bottled this batch. It has an interesting flavor, almost a sweet and sour maple flavor. It's hit or miss with people, they either...

Posting a quick update to the thread: The beer is now over a year old and it's interesting. It's not quite a smore, and VERY sweet, but good. Definitely a dessert beer. I think if it had more...

The beer turned out good (especially after a few months), but it's not anywhere close to the taste of Baltika #6. Next time I'll try the licorice, but I haven't been able to brew anything for the...

It turned out well, though probably could have used more boil time to increase the gravity. Doesn't taste like what I was going for, probably because it's not high enough alcohol.

Not yet, though my beer brewing has slowed to a trickle recently. This is on my way back burner, as there's a bunch of other things I want to brew and/or tweak beforehand.

That's what I initially thought, but I have made a subsequent batch using Munich (and a little vienna) for the base and it still doesn't give it the taste I'm looking for. It's definitely a molasses...

I ended up using treacle during the priming stage and I think it gave it a somewhat metallic flavor. It's only now coming together a little better. It's good, but for the first few months it...

Generally, but it can also use ale yeast if it's cold conditioned. As I find using lager yeast a PITA temperature wide, I've gone with ale yeast and just keep it as cold as I can (low 60's).
