Yea, just wondering if 1 tsp would be enough for any flavor effect at all. I made the AHS Pillocillo Porter a while ago, and it was almost a pound of brown sugar. I'm not meaning to criticize, just asking. If it turns out good, then who cares right?

yeah 1 tsp of brown sugar will not be noticeable - it will ferment almost completely out, and with that amount i doubt any detectable sweetness/flavor will show through
