Default Candy Sugar

i just found candy sugar here in the german stores, dark and white. maybe this is a better option to priming than brown sugar. is there any guide that can tell me about this. i know you guys are getting tired of my priming questions, but i have a batch that needs to be bottled and i don't have any corn sugar. i'm just looking at all options before i bottle so i don't ruin it. i just have no idea how much to put in. the candy sugar i found is in little shaped lumps. any ideas????

btw, i'll be buying about 10 boxes of both colors so i can use them in later brews!!!!!

Have you thought about using DME?

i don't have any. i'd use that in a heartbeat if i had some. i'm looking at off the shelf store options of priming. i figured candy sugar would be the best off the shelf option

As long as you prime with something fermentable you'll be fine

I use ⅓ cup of Candi Sugar along with ½ cup of Corn Sugar or just ½ cup of Candi Sugar for each 5 gallon batch of Belgian Ale. These I boil for 10 minutes in 2 cups of water.

I hope this helped. Good luck,
Wild
