While I have never been disappointed with any kits I have used, I do like Austin Homebrew best. They seem fresher and better tasting. Just my .02. YMMV.

Tex,
You may be able to find corn sugar at a health food store. I would call around and check it out. It also is called dextrose. I would think that you could find it in Denton, but I haven't been...

To answer that question we need to know how long you have had it in secondary first. I usually don't secondary and go 4-6 weeks in primary.

Buffman,
I agree with Paco. If it is a 5 gallon batch no need for two packets of Notty. I have never had Notty do anything but a strong/fast fermentation. That of course my experience. YMMV.

Danger44,
You need to go straight from the fermentor to bottle. Normal average bottle carb time is 3 weeks @ 70 degrees. I don't know of any way to make it quicker myself.

Good Luck.

Danger44,
How are planning on carbing it? Force carb or bottle carb. I assume force carbbing, because you don't have time to bottle carb IMO.

This is some of the best advice out there. I completly agree and I leave every batch in primary at least 4 weeks. It is a much better beer if it is not rushed.
