I brewed an Abbey Dubbel about a month ago. Gonna take the first swig in September. The candi-sugar will boost the OG, add fermentables to the wort, thus boosting the final ABV. I used two pounds for a 5 gallon batch, but many recipes call for one pound per 5 gallon batch. So, if your following my routine, add about a pound of the sugar for a 2.13 gallon batch. If you want to follow other recipes, add about a half a pound. Add the sugar directly to the boil with 15 minutes left.
