I am going to bottle a porter in the next week that I added molasses to. I am wondering if anybody could answer or direct me to a resource for converting the priming potential/fermentability of blackstrap molasses versus corn sugar. I need to know how much molasses to add to a five gallon batch to prime.

I believe it varies quite a bit, between 60-70% fermentable. I tried it once in a brown ale (half molasses, half dextrose) and didn't much care for the resulting flavor.

Thank you Lars. I may bottle half with molasses and half with dextrose.

What is your Spoonful Scotch 80 Shilling?

It's a nice malty Scotch ale, made with golden promise base malt, some crystal 60 and melanoidin malt, and EKG hops.
