I'd also like to add Dark Egyptian Cane Sugar (to a porter), and Honey (to a nut-brown ale). Amounts of these? Add during boil? Goal is 5 - 7% alcohol content. Thanks!
DMe has about 45 ppg. That's points per lb. per gal. So one lb. of DME in one gal. of water yields a gravity of 1.045. Divide by 5 for 5 gal. and you get 1.009. So, in a 5 gal. batch, you get 9 gravity points out of 1 lb. of DME. 5 lb. in 5 gal. will get you 1.045 OG. Cane sugar has about the same ppg. Honey is around 32 ppg. Using all of that, if you know the gravity you're going for, you can figure out how much of what to use.
