I made one small change to this recipe. I replaced the 1 oz of black patent with 8 oz of homemade caramel. ( 8oz of sugar in a foil pan into a 350f oven until it melts)
I bottled this today and I drank 2 bottles while I was filling the rest. Even flat and 60f it was the best I've made.:rockin:

I'm contemplating making this one but have a question. 51 IBU?? Is that right? That seems way too high.

Fullers is more like 35, but I like a bit more bitter

If you do it DO NOT overcook the caramel. If it goes beyond reddish-brown into the brownish-black color range it will impart a burnt taste to the beer

I made this with the brewers carmel instead of the black patent and I mashed thickish at 1qt/lb and at 151F for 60 and man... it came out so nice, an incredible mellow finish, like silk... beautiful color - the carmelizing was not easy... I decided 'The Joy Of Cooking' method was the way to go and it was not! I'm guessing that baking it would be better... I still got a nice product of carmelized sugar but it was very hard to do it like I did, stove top.

I will be making this again and again... thanks for the recipe and ideas!

is there a product you can buy for the carmelized sugar? Like a candi syrup?

Are you boiling the sugar for 60 minutes?

OK folks. I am brewing something with hints from this recipe and decided to caramelize my own sugar as suggested. Thought I would add some tips

- If you think you're going to do this at 350 degrees in the oven, get out a good book, cause you'll be there all day. 425-450 degrees minimum.
- don't pre-heat the oven, the edges of your sugar may burn quickly
- level out the sugar as much as possible. I put a pound of sugar in a foil "boat" on a thick cookie sheet with silpat layer, on a pizza stone, in a high end convection oven...
- Rotate the pan a couple of times to evenly heat
- stir with a temp tolerant spatula (silicone)
- once it cures, you can cut off (or break off) and burnt edges outside of your color range preference.

I started with 16 ounces, ended up with 14.4 ounces. Good enough for me, but if you are worried about hitting your recipe dead on, I would use more sugar than you need and then you can back-adjust after you have caramelized accordingly.
