Since i'm in Sweden and can´t get a hold of DAP i'm planing on using ammonium bicarbonate (hartshorn). Does anyone know if i should use the same amount as i would with DAP?

Other uses for candy syrup

1. Heat skillet. Add butter
2. Sauté fresh pineapple
3. Add 1/2 oz rum
4. Drizzle candy syrup over top
5. As soon as combined pour directly over ice cream.
6. Enjoy!

Thought I would post some notes on my dubbel using the sugar. I guess I didn't get it dark enough (as you can see in the photo in a previous post) so the dark fruit favors aren't there in my dubbel. It's very dry, and not very dubbel-like. I will try it again, but get the first round of darkening much darker

I got into this thread when I read the title. I was expecting to read some cornmeal, and an alcohol resistant yeast to 22%. Then for it go go on explaining the differences between pot stills and a column or reflux still. Imagine my disappointment.

mvasilis,
if you are using ammonium bicarbonate use 1% of the weight of sugar. Here is an article from the brew like a monk website. scroll down towards the bottom and check out the feedback for a very lengthy and weight/temp specific comment.

I have Wyeast beer nutrient but no DAP on hand. I understand that the Wyeast nutrient has some (or a lot?) of DAP in it but I can't find anything that says how much. Can I substitute it for DAP? Thanks!

No, you can't. You'll just get burnt sugar (as I learned once to my detriment). There's a lot of other "stuff" in the wyeast nutrient.

I have made this syrup to put over ice cream before but the pineapple and rum just take it to a new level. Sounds, and looks, delicious!

I think the lack of dark color is due to too high heat, it takes a while to get to the 250 degree point, so people heat it up too much, then it blasts past 290 before the top layer of the pot can mix (past when water and amonia boils off), and the longer it takes until it reaches terminal temp, the better it mixes, the more of the mass turns dark. Going to try that again soon

I just made the 290 degree version of this today for a Belgian Dubbel I'm planning on brewing next weekend and good Lord it's delicious! I may never get the smell of ammonia out of my nose though.
