3/14/2014 – I read somewhere, don't remember if it was on your site or not, that you could add brown sugar, molasses, or, I was thinking, maple syrup to some kits to add flavor and alcohol content. How much should I try for a five gallon brew?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's best to go slowly with additions like this. Try one pound at the most, and see how it affects the flavor. You can always increase it for the next batch, but there is no taking it out!
2/29/2012 – is this product good to use for bottling? will it add some flavor to the brew?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would NOT use for bottling, corn sugar or dry malt extract are better choices.Brown sugar will produce larger bubbles when used for carbonating. Not generallly desirable. The small amount of flavor that brown sugar adds is very, very small.It will also produce more sediment than corn sugar.A small amount (less a pound)of brown . . .

3/12/2007 – About to brew the scuttlebutt porter,with changes.1)I plan on adding 2 cups of brown sugar to the boil.At what point during the boil & is the c&h pure cane brown ok? 2)I want to add a pot of brewed coffee. Add it prior to pitching the yeast in primary? 3)Shooting for a coffee/mocha type porter so I was thinkin 2-4 tbs of the dry hersheys . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1) Any time during the boil is fine for adding brown sugar. Yes, C&H will work.2) Correct. DON'T add it to the boil. Cool it off to room temperature also.3) Correct. Make sure it has no oils or fats added.4) Yes, I think licorice would be too much with the above additions. Personal choice, of course. I have made licorice porters too . . .
2/12/2007 – I notice that some of the recipes call for brown sugar to be added at the "end of the boil." How long before the end, or is it just after you are done boiling that you add the brown sugar?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There is nothing critical about this. Add at any time, beginning of the boil, end, even after if you have to.

11/15/2005 – how many lb of brown sugar i need to make a canned of cooper ale?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: In order of preference, we recommend:1) 2.0 lbs dry malt extract2) 2.2 lbs corn sugarand LASTLY3) 2 lbs table sugar or brown sugarTable sugar or brown sugar of this quantity is not really a good idea. Those sugars can impart a harsh cider-like flavor to your beer. A smaller amount, like 1/4 to 1/2 pound is alright, but I wouldn't . . .
