I've made Edworts without using the corn sugar, and it works just fine. I've done it using honey, and brownsugar. The end taste varies a bit, but they all turn out just fine.

Thought about ahs, but don't want to pay $8 shipping on a $10 order. I was hoping for a local place to pick it up, but it has proven to be quite elusive...

You can use honey, cane sugar, corn sugar, or just about any other fermentable sugar. Catch is to minimize off flavors. That said, I've used clover honey before cause I had left overs from a mead and it wasn't really detectable in the final product.

Pinche... I emailed LHBS to see when they were getting it. They emailed me back and said they found 100 lbs under some grain right after I left yesterday... Really?!?

Ok, that makes a little more sense. If they had really run our, their inventory control person would need to be fired.

I always get my corn sugar from the local bulk food store. It's cheaper (significantly) the my LHBS...
