Newbie, on my third batch...

I have an option of the regular priming sugar that came in my recipe kit, corn sugar, or beet sugar rocks (used in Belgian beers).

I want to know the pros/cons of each, please. This particular batch is a wheat beer, but I guess I just need some general info.

the priming sugar that came with your kit is almost guaranteed to be corn sugar. I've never seen anything else packed with a kit for priming.

As for the beer sugar.... no idea there. Never used it nor read much about others using it.
