I want to bottle tonight and just realized I don't have sugar. Does Safeway or someone like that sell corn sugar? I know they sell corn syrup...

You can use cane sugar, just reduce the amount you use.

Check out this thread:

And to answer your question, no, I don't believe any grocers sell corn sugar. At least Kroger and Marsh Walmart do not.

No but you can get table sugar at the grocery store. You likely already have it in your house, and you can use this to figure how much to use:

that calculator is cool...

How do I know how much C02 I want/need?

I'm bottling Edworts Haus Ale. It's around 75 degrees. 5 gallons.

The drop down menu has the CO2 volume ranges for each style. That beer is an APA so the middle ground would be about 2.5. That require about 4.5oz by weight of table sugar.
