Default Table sugar or priming lhbs sugar?

When I use normal tablesugar I get carbonation in a week but sometimes I get a super frothy head that stays throughout the time it takes to drink it. A pale ale I made only with 2-row. Is the 5 oz priming sugar they give you just powdered sugar? Its always 5 oz too, do you need to adjust that by beer style?

Default

Its not powdered sugar, its dextrose. Table sugar is sucrose. Powdered sugar/confectioners sugar usually has some corn starch or other anti caking agent. You can really prime with either one

5oz is the amount that comes with kits. If you want to brew to style, you can calculate by weight the amount you should add. It usually ends up in the 4-5 oz depending on the style.
