I'm brewing the Dubbel from BCS Saturday. I just figured out that I have belgian dark candi and not the syrup called for in the recipe.

I can't get the syrup by Saturday (although I could make some, I suppose). What difference, if any, should I expect?

If the recipe calls for dark syrup, and you have hard, that's fine.

But like freeze said, it is fun to make your own belgian candi syrup and hard.
