In response to requests we've worked to move our release date to June this year, (rather than October). We will not be at full volume capacity in June but we will be able to provide home brewers D-90 and D-180. For those micro-breweries who have made requests, October will still be our target date for volume Belgian style syrups.

Anyone can go out to our new corporate info site, (which will also be a direct order site in June), to register for a free 1lb sample. (saq, we can get you what you need for a full batch of Westy 12. Make sure and note your homebrewtalk id name "saq" on the online form so we'll know).

Go to www.candisyrup.com, select the menu Contact->Request a Sample and register. Once you register you're guaranteed for the sample of D-180. A shipping payment request will be sent over email before we send the sample out in June. The shipping cost will be nominal.

Below is a snapshot of our promotional containers of D-180.

Hey Since, thanks for the recipe! I will have to try it. May have to do it once with the lower quality syrup to try out the recipe, and see the light when yours stuff is available for purchase!

On the Saq recipe, I followed the New World, got it down to 1.014 (good enough), and is near point to bottle. It tastes good, but I cracked open a Westy12 two nights ago (I have 6, boo ya!) and my brew seemed to lack the deep dark fruit flavor and aroma that makes Westy12 so damned awesome. It seemed that at the 2 month mark it was good to go from what I was reading. Do I need to let this go in the bottles for a few months to get those deeper fruit notes that I am seeking?

And back to you Since, seems I missed the promo period. Ah well, will have to get some from you anyway come the release date!

Part of it is D1 is really sweet and not super deep dark fruit character, the D2 helps some but doesn't really do the trick. I'd love to see what I can do with D180.

D-180 has both dark toasted flavors and the very, very rich dark fruit flavors as well. The dark fruit flavors show even more in the beer after a few weeks racked. The delivery run of D-180 for the promotion is being packaged now . Delivery for some will come early.

Well if sample delivery it soon enough I will use it for at least a portion of the westy I'm planning brewing. I have a full compliment of D2 but may supplement to at least add some of the dark fruit flavors that I keep hearing the D180 has.

We're advancing the June promotional delivery of D-180 to May. Some will receive theirs earlier in May and others later in the month.

That was my concern. Again, the real draw of the Westy12 was the dark fruit notes that come through. I am going to keep attempting the brew until I get it right. May be years, but I will do it, because if I can it will be a staple.

Tall_Yottie,

Feel free to send us a note at http://www.candisyrup.com/general-contact-form.html and if you want to leave us your mailing address info I'll get a gold-foil sealed pack of D-180 sent out to you. Make sure and let us know your HBT name so we know it's you.

Danke, have now done so!

I will be certain to report the status of the brew once supplies are gathered and it has come to maturity. Luckily I have the real thing to compare it to, though I still and rather frugal on my samplings.
