I took a search but I couldn't find anything specific.

I am looking for conversion charts from dextrose(corn sugar) from kg's to cups.

I don't have a scale and I would like to make small batches of cider to test.

Second question, is brown sugar more dense than dextrose? I would like to try using brown sugar in a recipe, but wondering if I should use as much as dextrose.

Beer prices in Ontario Canada
24 Bottles for $28.89..........That's the DISCOUNT brand!

kilograms is mass, cups is volume. they don't convert easily. 1 cup of cornstarch is not the same mass as 1 cup of lead shot, but they are both 1 cup.

1 cup of corn sugar is about 150 grams. But this varies depending on how loosely or tightly it's packed and moisture content.

Liked 117 Times on 104 Posts Escali Primo Digital Multifunctional Scale, Chrome: Home & Garden is a cheap and excellent scale that is used by many homebrewers. It has a resolution of 1 gram, so it isn't precise enough for measuring out salts, but it's great for hops, priming sugar, specialty grains and adjuncts.
