anyone add the syrup after pitching? I was thinking of brewing this weekend, and my syrup isn't scheduled to come in until monday...

I would add the syrup as late in the boil as possible to retain a lot of the awesome delicate flavors it has.

Adding all the syrup after pitching could be difficult as you might get some that doesn't dissolve. If you add it slowly over a few days while the fermentation is active it will probably get mixed in there real well.

Your only option would be to draw off some beer and mix the syrup in a pitcher. Maybe do it in two separate additions back to back to ensure you get good and dissolved. The oxygenation shouldn't harm the beer.

I added mine after pitching. I just bottled it last week so it'll be a while before I have some feed back.

I have the new world grains crushed, but I'm second guessing what syrup to use. I have a pound of d2, and a pound of csi 45. I can get anything. What do you all think? Thanks!

I think the darker will better compete (balance) the high alcohol levels in this batch. More character and flavor in the D2 than the 45. I haven't brewed this recipe with 45 but have tasted it and it is a lot different than D2. It is more caramel lighter vs. chocolate, roasty etc. That said I am sure it would still make a good brew.

You definitely want to do D1/D90 at least, and a mix with D1/D90 and D2/D180.

The ingredients for new world shows 80 and 40 srm which is why I grabbed the 45. What about 1 lb of d2 and 2 pounds of homemade dark syrup?

I may postpone my brew day and go grab a couple pounds of the csi d-180?

Go for it with the 45 and 90. That is what the original recipe said and that is pretty much the best one I've made so far. I may have to try it again soon just as is.
