Default Help! LHBS out of dextrose

Any idea where else I might be able to locate dextrose/corn sugar other than the LHBS?

I wonder if some gourmet grocer or something might have it?

If you ask me, a LHBS running out of priming sugar seems utterly ridiculous, though!

You could instead use dry malt extract to prime the beer. They aren't out of that, too, are they?

Yup, I'd use DME.

if you are just using it for carbonate you can use regular table sugar, you just need a bit more (there are charts around here somewhere)

Brown sugar or honey might be good...

I am using it to ferment EdWorts Apfelwein, which I have not made before, so I was really hoping to stick with the recipe. I checked our local Central Market and Whole Foods, but I haven't been able to find it. I will keep looking, and let you know if I find it.

When will they be getting any in?
Shouldn't hurt to age a bit in the fermenter.
Is there just the one shop in Houston?

With a recipe that pretty much requires store bought apple juice, wine yeast, and sugar...I can imagine it would be pretty hard to F it up. You'll be fine with table sugar.

Health food store carry Dextrose.

Often, cheaper than LHBS.
