There may already be a thread on this topic, if so feel free to redirect me. I'm brand new to home brewing (day one actually!). I got a Mr. Beer kit for Christmas and it's all set up with an American classic light brew and is in the fermentation process. My question is this: my kit came with this little bag of "carbonation pellets". It says on the baggie that they can be used as a substitute to sugar during the bottling process, but the actual directions that came with the kit make NO mention of said bag. So what should I do? Use the sugar or the pellets? And if I use either or, what will it do to my end results (flavor, body, alcohol content). Thanks for the help guys!
