1/2oz Kent Goldings (Dry-Secondary)

O.G. 1.035

The recipe called for Rapiura sugar. I substituted Demerara but that made it a little too dry. It did mellow out after two weeks in the keg.

How did this turn out? I'm looking for a good bitter to try. I have Jamil's recipe and may just go with that.

I'm wary of any bitter recipes calling for sugar, because of the same issue you are mention. It dries them out too much.
