Belgian candi sugar is crystallized beet sugar. It comes in diamond form without strings, and is used to produce many unique Belgian beers. Candi sugar increases the alcohol level and can be used also to change the color of the beer. Dark candi is generally used for Dubbel, Old Bruin, and holiday styles.
Usage: The amount used depends on the recipe or individual taste. Generally, the range is 8 oz to 2 lb in a 5 gallon batch of beer.
