Invert Sugar

To make invert sugar you take normal castor sugar, add a pinch of citric acid. Cover the sugar with just boiled water.

On the stove, you then do a rolling boil of this solution for a minumum of 10 min - 20min is better. let stand for 10 min.

You then have invert sugar to add to the kettle.
You also get a ring of brown from where the boil occurred.

This converts the castor/complex sugar to simple sugars and adds a slight caramel/tofee flavour from the boil.

Honey doesnt add a caramel taste, it adds a honey taste :)

If you want a caramel taste, add steeped caramalt or crystal malt.
