This is my first attempt at making a Belgian Style Candi Syrup. I have no reason to make it other than I had the ingredients and the time... Here are some pics:

http://cdn3.libsyn.com/basicbrewing/...c0baec7cc022d1

Step 1...
Combine Sugar, Water, and DAP


Coming up to temp... shooting for 270 (Light Amber)


Not much color up to this point


Almost to temp... color is definitely changing


Temperature has been reached... time for

Step 2...
Slowly add .75 cups of water


Color test


Step 3 (no picture)
Add another .75 cups of water when the sugar reaches 270 again

Step 4
Bring back up to 240

Then decant into very hot jars (to prevent thermal shock)


Final Color test

Just opened up the two smaller jars for a Belgian Singel (Enkel) I am brewing now. The favor is... sweet and certainly caramel and some of the soft fruit flavors, just like the PDF file suggests.

Just a Q about the yeast nutrient. Can I use some of the spare pouches of yeast nutrient I have left over from some wyeast packs I didn't smack but still used?

I'm going to give this a try for some future belgians and thanks very much for posting the pics and recipe page. Much appreciated!

My first thought is... I doubt it. I believe that those little packets are wort and yeast nutrient. As opposed to the DAP (Di-Ammonium Phosphate) that is used in this process.

DAP is fairly inexpensive and you should be able to pick it up at any LHBS?

You could probably find the contents of the nutrient packs on the Wyeast site. I used Fermaid K (contains DAP) and it worked. Anything that is a significant source of Nitrogen (and food safe) should work.
