So yeah...not sure this is one I'd recommend. It's been nearly 2 weeks and the taste isn't very good. It's pretty sweet but doesn't taste sugary. The FG ended up around 1.01 so it's not like it should be crazy sweet.

There's virtually no hop flavor in it either. I haven't bottled it yet but I'm not sure I should. I'm considering dry hopping now to see if it'll change the flavor for the better. Any thoughts on that so late in the game?

My LHBS has Belgian Candi Sugar but not syrup. Can't I use that?

I wouldn't. You can always make your own. Equal parts sugar and water and out it on the stove in a sauce pan. I've done this twice with very decent results.

Plain old table sugar?
