If you do this, make sure you use part of the yeast cake--if you use the whole thing, that's a pretty big overpitch. For a Belgian where you actual want some ester contribution to the flavor profile, overpitching is as problematic as underpitching.

MrMalty has calculations for how much yeast slurry to pitch.

I am learning towards brewing the traditional recipe. I did not read every single post in this thread.

Would the candi syrup be added in the beginning or the end of the boil?

I've done it all different ways. These days I am leaning towards 100% of the syrup at the end of the boil and let it knock the boil out. The different ways you do it generate different kinds of flavor, experiment and see!

Mine has won a whole mess of medals and stuff. I'm brewing a new batch up today with a slightly revised recipe, need to get started to be ready for upcoming competitions!

Just a few minutes to make sure you actually get the grains up to temperature too.
