It's going to be a winner!
Hope you used that expensive Belgian candy sugar.
Pricy but worth it until you figure out how to make it.
Looks easy, just need to do it.
I need to do it too!

I want to brew this next weekend so I went ahead and tried to make this syrup with the LD Carlson Yeast Nutrient. I followed the OP instructions exactly. I live at 6288 feet above sea level so I used the high altatude instructions and cooked too 240 degrees. I got syrup but no color. I ended up cooking to 250 degrees and still just a slight bit of color. I cooled the syrup and it basically hardened to a chewy consistancy. It was not liquid any longer but thick. Im going to buy the DAP and try again as that is the only thing that I can think of that changed my attempt.

Are there other options to making the Syrup for this recipe? Is Belgin candy Sugar asically the same thing?

Belgian candy syrup is a very close product, and will give equally good results.

Can anybody tell me how bitter this beer is? The recipe sounds very interesting but I am not big on very bitter beers.

I served it last year at a Superbowl party with a bunch of BMC drinkers and the keg was gone before the game was over. It is well balanced. No one complained that it was too bitter.

The trick at least for me was to add your water right after the boil. That keeps it a "syrup" like consistency. I boiled my sugar up to 280 which gave it a nice dark color using yeast Nutrient and a teaspoon of lemon juice.

My LHBS had amber Belgian syrup. This beer looks amazing. Been four weeks in primary. Going to cold crash in a keg for a couple weeks then carbonate for three weeks. Used a Pacman yeast cake. Excited about this one

Mmmmm camel taste.
