Ingredients / Re: All Munich Malt Belgian

Thanks for the replies.  The more I've been thinking about it, I think I'm going to split the base malt with half Pils and half Munich.

I was thinking of making a belgian with all Munich malt for the base malt.  Has anyone done this and what were the results?  I was thinking 12lbs Munich, 1 lb Caramunich, .5 lb Aromatic, and 1 lb of D-180 Candi Syrup.

A great band with integrity.  I saw them in '89 and they were even cool enough to have the Minutemen open up for them in the mid 80's.

Usually I like the grapefruit flavor (Amarillo), but lately I have been liking the passion fruit, mango flavor.

Denny, thanks for being the Guinea Pig in this experiment because I actually thought about doing this before.  Next time I'll just sniff the bag or smell the glove :D

I brewed a Rochefort 8 clone last weekend, and am waiting for some Staropramen yeast to arrive in the mail, so the only brewing I will do this weekend is making a lager starter.
Its also keg cleaning time again.

I'll be doing something similar to Rochefort.  My first time using Candi Syrup 180 and 45 and my starter is already going.

The Barley Wine that I made last year (10.5 %) took awhile to carbonate.  Give it some more time.

I haven't bottled since July for a vacation and I also like to listen to some good music when doing so.  It is the perfect amount of time to listen to an entire album from beginning to end while sipping on homebrew.

I thought that movie was great.  They're kinda like the real version of Spinal Tap.

Thanks,  I guess it really doesn't matter.

Ingredients / When should I add this Candi Syrup?

I just got some D-180 and D-45 Candi Syrup and was planning on making a Belgian Ale and posssibly adding both.  I have never used this stuff and was wondering when it should be added to the boil.  I have used the hard sugar and just added it at the beginning of the boil, but on the web site I see it added at flame out.  I am assuming that adding it at flame out will retain much of the flavor and I would like that, but does it matter if I add it at 10 min., 5 min., or 0 min.?

You can always keg it and throw some hops in there.  I use a little hop bag.

There is nothing like brewing a beer that surpases your expectations.
