    If you look at the recipe for The Devil is in the Details (Duvel Clone), it says cane suger in the list of grains but in the instructions, it says sugar disolved in water should be added 2-3 days after pitching the yeast. My question is - Should the amount of sugar mentioned in the fermentables be added in the mash, prior to boil, or is that the sugar which should be added 2-3 days after pitching the yeast. //Marcus Screen Shot 2017-09-27 at 21.29.19.png

    I'd say that's the sugar from the fermentables list. Ive seen similar things with imperial IPAs when you want to keep the yeast going but don't want them overwhelmed at first

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. Add it 2-3 days in

    Thanks - Really helpful. I looked at other recipes and some said add just before boil and some after pitch, but post pitch sounds good, not shocking the yeast.

    Sure thing. It depends on the recipe, I've only ever used it at the end of the boil (not counting priming sugar).
    I'm sure there's some science behind why adding it post pitch will yield different results
