And as for bottleing beers,I find I have to let average gravity ales condition (not just carb) for 4-5 weeks before they're aged properly,which takes a bit longer than carbonating from my observations. And I've used the cooper's carb drops before. Besides dextrose,sucrose,demerara sugar. Bulk priming is all too easy,& I prefer that so I can prime to style with more accuracy. But that's me. Do what suits you.
I know my bags say corn sugar or glucose on the label. Maybe there is sucrose in there too.

I know this is a old thread but I have this happen with my Kolsch I just brewed. Weird thing is that I fermented a 10 gallon batch in my conical together. Then kegged 5g and bottled 5g. The bottles have this sweet homebrewy taste to them when the keg tasted oh so delish. I let the bottles carb for about a month so I dont think it was to short? Cant figure out why? Im thinking about just buying a counter pressure bottle filler and just scraping the corn sugar all together.
