Sorry for the delayed response... Did you try it?

When do you add the Candi syrup? At the end of the boil? Into the fermenter? Other?

Also, have you ever tried this with WLP540 Abbey IV Ale Yeast? I've seen claims that this is the Rochefort yeast. They White Labs site says that 540 is fruitier than 530, but less so that 500.

Made this up yesterday- ended up with a SG or 1.075! Must have been my double milling (and use of blender) prior to throwing grains in the bag. Anxious to see how it'll turn out- smells very good and more hoppy than I expected.

*Update 12/12*
Took the hydrometer reading today: 1.022 for a ABV of 6.88! Taste is fruity, with a lingering smokey malt flavor and some good hop aroma. Very anxious to see how this tastes carb'd up.

Reason: Recipe update.

Im making similar dubble (half of cara munich and 1/4 of specB but 1.5lb of dark sugar) and i like this beer very much (have 3rd batch in 2ndary right now), next time i may change it according to this recipe. And i dont think it will be ready for Christmas if you brew it now, for me its 6 weeks fermentation and long bottle conditioning (around 3months) for great effect
