    just went with it. I've got 5 gal assisted by Nottingham and the other 5 gal is getting a

    Cool, thanks for the feedback.After going back to the priming section I see what you mean. I
    ended up changing it to "simple sugars" since I wanted to refer to the general principle as
    priming sugar c...
