I think that's still the myth that's propagating. While I've never used beet sugar, from, what I understand it's just another refined sugar like cane sugar (both sucrose) and there's no added taste. I believe there are other beet sugars available maybe (not refined) that may add flavours. Maybe people are seeing the word "beet" and assuming that all sugar products from beets are the same? Not sure. From everything I've read, most consider refined cane/beet/corn sugar the same.

Recipe has been re-written and moved to our new site.

See: https://shop.theelectricbrewery.com/pages/cream-ale-standard-lager

This thread will remain open for questions. Cheers!

I have notes that I believe are based on the old version of the recipe that state: "Ferment at 64F. Keeping below 65F keeps the esters in check"

However I notice the new recipe states to cool, pitch and ferment at 66F


Any thoughts on the difference between these two ?

You can see the old version from 2019 before I moved it to the new website using the wayback machine here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20190718081743/http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=26360

It says:

"Cool wort to 66F and aerate well. Ferment at 66-68F until complete."

I checked as far back as 2013 and it always said that.

So slightly different from before, but not what you had in your notes I'm afraid. For what it's worth, the differences between the 3 will be incredibly minor and I doubt anyone would notice a difference between a 64F and 66F ferment with US-05. Try it both ways and see.

When I moved all of the recipes to the new website I reworked/tweaked many of the recipes slightly. Very minor changes usually. In this case probably differentiate it a bit more from the lager version.
