Sugar will be nearly 100% consumed by yeast and make your beer even more pithy. You will want more spec malt to increase the final gravity for a more juicy flavor. Juice has tons of sugar it in. The more left over sugar in your beer will give you the result you want.Was thinking about adding some turbinado. Do you add at the end of the boil? I'm trying to get a sweeter and juicier finish, rather than pithy grapefruit. Would love to hear more about your process in trying to gett it closer to a Juliius clone.
However too much caramel malt may give you a Cotton candy, prune juice, caramel flavor that will clash with this style of beer. Maybe try malt like carahell, and add a bit of Munich, will give you what you want.
