Thanks. I was looking for it on the recipe site but did not see it. I don't think I will go with the dark candi sugar though. Plain sugar looks like it will work just fine and will help me adjust gravity in the boil.

That little smiley was unintended. Did not realize that three question marks means "perplexed." It was more of a "is this what you are looking for?"

Make your own dark sugar, it's really easy and cheaper than buying it.

I brewed the beer this past weekend. The gravity turned out great. It is fermenting away right now. I only needed 23 lbs of base malt due to my efficiency. The color was not as dark as I expected coming out of the mash and since I wasn't using the dark sugar I crushed 2 oz of Blackprinz malt and added it to the top of the grain bed before sparging. That did the trick.

I will be adding regular sugar to the fermenting beer in a few days.
