Thanks all!! I'm going to go check out a few more places and then substitute brown sugar... I know it won't be the same but I've had minor success with it.

I hear the stuff is pricey. I just don't know why the LHBS's don't carry it... I mean enough British recipes call for it...

Orfy -- How might a guy make his own invert sugar syrup?

Cheers!

Joe

I use dark brown sugar in my bitter recipes. A better substitute though would be demerara sugar if you want to stay in style.

Sweet thanks! If I can't find LGS this morning I'll be picking some of that up to try.

Cheers!

LHBS used to carry it because the homebrew distributor used to carry it. They stopped carrying it.

Probably have better luck looking in the baking section of the grocery store than a LHBS

Add a bit of acid (lemon/citric) and boil.

If anyone is still following this and/or is interested. I was in my local grocery store last night (QFC) and happened to notice Lyles Golden Syrup. They had it on the top shelf in the section with the pancake syrup. Hope that helps anyone else trying to find it at their stores.
