What score did it get, out of curiosity.

38. I included the score in the bottom of the first post. I don't remember what the scores were from the individual judges though.

Don't know how I missed that. Nice work, and a good looking recipe. I have yet to brew my 1st BGS, but this recipe looks pretty much exactly how I'd go about it.

Brewed this up tonight. Substituted store bought amber candi syrup and added 2 lbs grain to make up for efficiency. Ended up at 1.090 OG. Looking forward to this one !

Awesome! Let me know how it comes out for you.

I still have a bottle or 2 of this in my fridge. Waiting for a special occasion to break into them. Then I'll actually need to brew up another batch of this soon as well!

when do you add the candi syrup in the brewing process? into the BK or fermentor? or some other time.. i've adapted your recipe a bit to give it a try.. thanks for the building blocks :-)

I added mine right at the end of the boil. Turned off the burner, dumped the candi syrup in, gave it a stir, then started the chiller.

Lots of people mention not adding it until later on during fermentation, but i didn't have any troubles getting it to dry out so i don't think it really matters.

I bottled this today. Ended up a bit darker than the picture, the hydrometer sample tasted raisin-y with little banana. We'll see how it carbs up. Also had quite an alcohol bite, I calculated approx 10.8 % abv. Hopefully this will mellow.

It definitely starts out quite strong. After a couple months it starts to mellow out. What temp did you ferment at?

I didn't really get any raisin note on mine, perhaps that was due to the different candy syrup? This is color of the homemade syrup that i used.

It fermented between 72 - 75 degrees room temperature, and it sat in secondary for 5 weeks or so at at 75-78, so maybe not enough temperature to get a good Belgian flavor. I have to think the raisin flavor is from the sugar. It was a lot darker than i thought it would be. The hydro sample reminded me of the chimay grand reserve, not near as good, but it had that same sort of flavor.
