I don't know if it is Chimay-based or not - but when I make a Chimay clone and try it next to 3 philosophers, it has tasted the same. It may just be they share the same tanginess that Chimay has...

As a general rule, I take a cup of sugar dissolved in ~1 cup of water and add it to a 5 gallon corny and then fill the corny and bottle from the corny. That seems to carb to a level that seems right...
