In my house, it is always that time.

What's on the list to brew first?  I have to imagine something simple and clean so you can get a clear picture of what 240 brings to the game.

All Pils and a lb of two of the syrup?

Denny,

Does the package list the ingredients?

Or are you prohibited by a NDA from listing the ingredients

Denny I have your Chimaybe recipe handy.  Have you made any changes? And the candy sugar is the D-45?

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking.  I'm intrigued by the idea of a dark patersbier so I think I'm gonna go in that direction.  Then use the yeast for a Rochefort like thing.

Euge, I haven't brewed that in a LONG time, so no changes.  D45 would be the way to go I think.

Thanks Denny. I'm hoping there isn't any negative reason for not brewing it... ;D

absolutely not.  I just enjoy other Belgian style beers more than that one these days.

In a dubble?
While no D-240 would be involved I am thinking about brewing my lemon-rosemary blonde ale as a saison.

I'm wondering if this is the final step towards single malt/single sugar Belgians that encompass all the flavors we are all after.

The syrup is delicious!  It has an intense black coffee and chocolate flavor to it.
