Default Grafschafter Sugar beet syrup

I was wondering if anybody has used this ingredient in a beer. It is sugar beet syrup but i am not sure about this item. I havent tried it but could it be an alternative to some of the other beet sugar products.

That's interesting. I hadn't seen that before.

How would this beet sugar differ from the other stuff for brewing?

reverseapachemaster found a spec sheet for what Belgosuc makes that Dark Candi imports. I believe the product was D2, and IIRC it contained about 45% maltose. I don't know how much maltose beets naturally contain, but I don't think it's that much. So there's some sort of processing going on with it, or added ingredients.

As far as how it's different, I'd need a lot more info to start to answer that. The best way would be to buy some and taste it. Maybe it's better than what people have been using.
