Default Dextrose?

I just returned from the grocery store with all my ingredients for hard cider....except dextrose. Is it necessary to use dextrose or can I use regular sugar?

You can use table sugar, I'm a fan of brown sugar

Three votes for Brown over White Table Sugar.

Table sugar has weird flavor in cider. I use brown or sugar in the raw....(brown I use light brown and dark brown)

Dextrose is great for bottle conditioning. Mellower bubbles. Also fairly neutral flavor
