You've ditched the liquorice powder and treacle then?

I've just not listed the liquorice yet as I've not totally decided on the amount, but am ditching the treacle. :)

Why so? Not the flavour you were looking for?

I don't think the amount of treacle used in the old brew didn't have any effect on flavour.
I've used 1g/litre of liquorice Powder.

I am about to try a “tribute” to St Austell Mena Dhu Cornish stout which contains liquorice root powder. Is 1gm / litre about right at end of boil to give enough flavour without being overpowering??
