Title: Candi syrup recipes
Post by: denny on June 08, 2011, 04:47:49 PM
I just noticed that Candi Syrup Inc. has a page of recipes for using their products.  Some very nice looking Belgian beer recipes at http://www.candisyrup.com/recipes.html .

Thank you very much, but I think I'll be the judge of the recipes. :)

I think this thread "is" his bragging right.  ;D

Hey Denny...bring a bottle to next years NHC for my seal of approval.  ;)  ;D

I saw that when I ordered the syrup for my quad.  There was a very long thread on another site about the Westy quad recipe that one of the Candi Syrup Inc founders participated in.  But I did not see that last revision (added Special B).  Allegedly, the fermentation temp/schedule is very important to get the right flavors.  Almost appears they are trying to make the yeast struggle to finish and for it to do so slowly.

I just try to ignore that stuff...they can say what they like about me.  Yeah, I told them I was gonna brew the quad (2 weeks ago) and they asked for the recipe and brewed it last week.  Although the wort tasted and smelled great, they may be jumping to conclusions since it isn't finished yet.

I love it! ;D I'm just wondering what industry they are referring to.  Are you one of the sound engineering industry's finest Brewmasters? THE finest, I'm sure ;) ;D

I had the same thought, Tom.  Industry?

They way they worded it I assume they meant brewing industry.  Make a badge out of it and wear it at NHC.

Denny Conn - One of the industry's finest Brewmasters.  ;D

Cool, thanks for posting the link.  I've got a dark strong on deck for later this month, and have been searching for a good base recipe.  Think I'll give one of those a shot...

Got my pouches yesterday - 2 of each (except the Simplicity, which I got 1 of)

Can't wait to give them a shot.

Last one I did was basically this beer: Tempting Fate (http://www.maltosefalcons.com/recipes/tempting-fate) with an addition of D2 to it and then aging on French Oak aged in Pinot Noir.

eta: it was awesome.

Sounds delicious. I love making beers with candy syrup. They lend alot of dark fruit flavors. The dark ones anyway.
