a.e.mossberg <> posts a recipe:

> For a 5 gallon batch...

> 2 cans of Pilsner/Lager or American Light Malt
> 15 cups corn sugar
> 2 jars Lyle's Golden Syrup (22oz)
> 2.5 oz Hallertauer hops
> 2 lbs flaked maize
> 1 pkt BrewMagic.

Three questions --

What is "Lyle's Golden Syrup"?
What is "BrewMagic"?
What type of beer is the resultant product?

I suppose the syrup is some sort of flavoring/sugar adjunct. What is it,
and what character does it give the beer?

Based on the directions, I assume that BrewMagic contains diastatic enzymes
(natural or artifical?) which convert the corn starches into sugars.

What distinctive characteristics does "Killer Party Ale" have? Is it a
Cream Ale, an IPA, an Old Ale, or a Barley Wine? I would guess it is an
Old Ale, based on the Starting Gravity and hopping rate.

As a suggestion to recipe posters, please describe any 'unusual'
ingredients when posting recipes. Many shop brands are not available
everywhere, and we need to substitute! Describe the resultant product --
tell us why we would want to make the recipe!
