Ok. One more question before I do this. Why the 1# of corn sugar? Can more grain be used to get this sugar? Dme? Table sugar? What is the best way to achieve the end result? It may just be me but I don't like the idea of adding corn sugar to my beer. Then again I'm new at this. Thanks for all the help. Can't wait to brew this tomorrow.

The sugar is classic to Belgian beers to have the high attenuation, and crisp dryness so it isn't as heavy. Corn sugar is perfect for this beer.

Ok. I brewed this on saturday and I missed my OG, ending up at 1.065. This was my first AG attempt so I don't think my efficiency was up to par and I didn't get enough water boiled off. I also had to substitute .40 lb of table sugar because I cant convert oz to lbs and only got 10 oz of corn sugar. At worst I will have a hoppy Belgian double. I plan to harvest my yeast and try again next weekend. My oak just gets to enjoy that Jim Beam an extra week or two. Trial and error right?!

Just finished carbing batch #1. Decent flavor but a little too dry due to missing my OG. Batch #2 is sitting on the oak in secondary. It has been 2 weeks and the bourbon is coming through. The oak is faint. Has a strong alcohol taste right now. That will mellow after a few months in bottles. So far so good. Even my botched batch is tasty!

Can't wait to try this. Just need to get the RIS, IPA, & choc hazelnut porter out of the way first.
