Did I just hear a penny drop?

Just swap the sugar for 1.2 x DME and you'll stand a chance.

I always get sugar in 1kg packages from my LHBS or wherever I happen to order from (usually austin homebrew), and you should NEVER use cane sugar from the grocery store.

Now, don't get pissed at me if something goes wrong, but I do have a digital scale, and it appears as though 1 cup of sugar weighs about 200g (see, I even used grams)

I do think, however, that you should just scrap the sugar and go for DME, just as easy to use, and it tastes a whoole hell of a lot better.

I don't understand these kits saying to add 2.2lbs of sugar when your only using around 5lbs of malt (i switched back to english measurements). A small amount can give you a little drier finish, but that much just makes it taste cidery, which you don't want in your brew, unless your brweing cider, but you're not, so you don't.
