You can use corn syrup IF it doesn't have anything extra in it, like vanillin. Add about 20% over the dry measure.

Brown sugar is ok in dark, roasty ales. It will give them a slight molasses flavor.

IIRC Corn Sugar is the US term for sugars derived from starch to produce Dextrose which is the industrial name for Glucose.

If you can find some powdered glucose/dextrose this will be the same as corn sugar.

Try ypur local chemist/pharmacy - they oftern stock powdered glucose
