Davcar I would like to have your version of this recipe. I'm not set up for all grain and would really like to try it.

I searched this thread but didn't see it anywhere... By chance is wyeast yeast nutrient the same as this DAP stuff? (as most everything else in brewing.....I'm sure what I already own won't work ).

Also, if I can't get the syrup made, would brown sugar be a terrible idea in its place? I respect the recipe and would like to make the syrup, but if I can't source DAP until my next NB or morebeer order then I'm SOL for making it.

I'd hold off until you can order the syrup or ingreedients for the syrup. Brown sugar, in my opinion, will change the beer and this beer is good and does not need to be changed...I have always liked ambers and this is one of the best I have had...seriously. I say wait - you will be rewarded.

The Wyeast Yeast Nutrient Blend and DAP are not the same thing. Wyeast Yeast Nutrient Blend and Fermaid K can be interchanged.

BTW - By using the darker syrup in mine, the color shifts more towards the brown ale side, but damn if it doesn't taste like everything an Amber Ale should be...

I assume one could also just use Candi Syrup...?

Of course! I'd go with the D-45 for this recipe. But you'll be paying much more for it than if you made it.

Gotcha...yeah, it's about $10.00 for similar stuff at my LHBS. But compared to sourcing DAP, buying a candy thermometer, and time to cook it up, I may go the 'buy' rather than 'build' route, at least for the first batch.
