Fermenter's Favorites® Corn Sugar

SKU: 7540x

Corn sugar, also known as priming sugar, is an inexpensive fermentable sugar that produces alcohol without leaving the cloying residual sweetness of malt extract.

Adding a small amount (no more than 10% of total fermentables) will increase alcohol content with minimal impact on taste.

Adding 30-40% will produce a beer with a considerably lighter body than one brewed strictly with malt sugars (think American light lagers). 5 oz. (141.75 g).

Corn sugar and table sugar (sucrose) are cheap fermentable sugars that product alcohol without leaving the cloying residual sweetness of malt extract.

Corn sugar and table sugar (sucrose) are cheap fermentable sugars that product alcohol without leaving the cloying residual sweetness of malt extract. Adding a small amount (no more than 10% of total fermentables) will increase alcohol content with minimal impact on taste. Their use in quantities of 30-40% will produce a beer with a considerably lighter body than one brewed stickily with malt sugars (think American light lagers). Any canned kits, and the body of the beer they produce, can be improved upon greatly by substituting the corn sugar with malt extract, either dried or liquid.

Bottling Beer: Use 3/4 cup of corn sugar (priming sugar).

Mini Keg: Use 1/3 cup of corn sugar (priming sugar).

Good Bottling sugar
4 ounces for 5 gallons does the job for me. Give the bottles a couple of weeks to carbonate and they are ready.

Hard Cider and Fruit wine
I use 2-3 pounds for my hard ciders and fruit wines. It adds the alcohol and thins out the wine without adding an off flavor like table sugar does.

good for priming
The Midwest kits come with corn sugar for priming the bottles for carbonation, so if you are buying a kit you do not need this. I bought this when I tried my own recipe._x000D_The 5oz package will produce about 2.8Vol of CO2 in a 5gal batch._x000D_

Cheap and afffective
Corn sugar is cheap and reliable. Either using in the recipe as an extra ingredient to boost the ABV without affecting the the flavor of the beer much or to carbonate your beer. Either way you can't go wrong. I will always keep extra corn sugar on hand._x000D_

Carbonate your beer without a cider taste
Corn sugar has a cleaner and purer taste than table sugar. Its also handy in case you want to boost the alcohol level in beer or cider.

Great for bottle Carbing Beer
I like to use this rather than tablets, seems to give a more even carbonation. Plus I can add more ore less to get more or less carbonation. Control is king.

great for priming
I use this sugar to prime my beer bottles, and I love to use it for making hard lemonade. I also use it for making hard tea, it doesn't impact the taste and its great to boost up the alcohol content.

Add CO2 to your Beer
Using this sugar you can bottle condition your beer, or add some to a keg to naturally carb it.
