Sugars?

Recommended Posts

I got my kit and made the West Coast Pale Ale. During boiling I used 2 orange peels. When it came time to bottle I used regular sugar in all but two. Then in one bottle I used brown sugar and the other was honey. Needless to say the honey was GREAT, brown sugar good, and regular sugar VERY bland.

Just bought the Brew Ha Ha Bock, I don't want the honey taste in this better/stronger beer. I have heard of a "Wine sugar." Has anyone used this. After reading some posts it looks like corn sugar is the way, but just wondering if anyone has used the wine sugar.

Thanks!

I haven't heard of "wine sugar", but then, I lead a sheltered life.

Do you have more information on this wine sugar? After all, it may just be corn sugar that's been renamed to give the snooty-tooty, hoity-toity, toffee-nosed, hoi-polloi, fancy-schmancy wine snobs another reason to feel superior to us snooty-tooty, hoity-toity, toffee-nosed, hoi-polloi, fancy-schmancy beer snobs.

I'm just sayin'.

Welcome I see this is your first post....
Never heard of wine sugar but have been very happy using table sugar....

The amount used to prime a bottle should not have an effect on flavor

I just emailed the guy who was telling me about the wine sugar. Maybe I heard him wrong, we'll see and I'll let you all know I guess. :(

He has heard of champagne sugar, but it looks like it may just be pure cane sugar. Anyone know?
