I'm tempted to try my next cider with brown sugar over white cane sugar. I usually add 5 cups or 5 pounds of sugar per 5 gal. of cider. Do you think the same amount of brown sugar is appropriate?

I think its a good idea, but remember, tastes vary. The same ammount of brown sugar will give slightly less alcohol,but more flavor and body.
