Dunno about how to input it on beer engine, but it does give a very stong liquorice flavour, so I would use sparingly, unless that's what you like
no palate, no patience.


Drinking - of course

I used 300g in a Chocolate Treacle Stout. Came out well, not too treaceley(?) but you could taste it. I took some of the boiling wort mixed in the treacle and added 20 mins before end of boil. :D

Morning jimbo, I've used half a small tin of this treacle in my last two stouts, and I has given It a very nice flavour and will continue to use It in this quantity, I put it in for last 10 mins of boil (23litres), sorry i don't use any software or tools so can't help you with that bit! Cheers matt

It's partially inverted unrefined cane sugar and includes mollases. I started adding it to my dark milds gradually and found that amounts above 100g in a 27L brew were noticable by an increasing liquorice flavour, this of course would bot be so apparent in a stout which you could get away with higher amounts. It's not the same as No 4 invert sugar which along with the other range can be obtained from http://www.ragus.co.uk ( 25kg tubs ) but you can make your own by boiling white cane sugar with a little citric acid and evaporating till the desired colour is reached.

It goes great in a stout IMO. I happily use a whole tin in a 23l brew.
