saq,

Thanks for this thread, this will be my next brew.

I cant seem to find the belgium syrup anywhere (all out of stock) but I can find the belgian candy sugar. Is it okay to sub sugar for syrup?

Sorry if this is a dumb question as I am sure it is.. but I havent used any invert sugars before in my brews and not really familiar with them.

The syrup is a key for the beer tasting the way it does, rocks/sugar have very poor flavor in comparison. If you don't use it you are on your own for figuring out how to make it taste the way you want.

You can order it online at a whole bunch of stores, its really common. Brewmasters Warehouse is where I got my last order from but I'm pretty sure you can also get it at Northern Brewer, Austin Homebrew Supply and others. I think both of my LHBS carry them now too.

All out of stock! I think I found a LHBS that is not so local to ship me some... thanks! I think this thread has started a shortage of Belgian Candi Syrup

The sugar that you say to add at three separate points during the boil in the traditional recipe. Is that corn/cane sugar or is that the Dark Candi syrup?

Also, according to beer calculus my OG is 1.092 as is with zero corn/cane sugar...just the 3# of Syrup and the extract. Should I stray away from adding any corn/cane sugar?
