maltodextrin is a long chain of dextrose units, I don't think brewers yeast can ferment anything bigger than a disaccharide or maybe a trisaccharide.

OK Thanks. So instead of using 250 gr of coopers brewing sugar, which contains 200 gr of dextrose, I will use approximately 312 gr of it, which contains roughly 250 gr of dextrose (needed for the recipe) and 62 gr of maltodextrin). I suppose that will do it.

As I was reading the recipe I wondered if they mean Dark Corn Syrup? It would have been easy to mistype since they had started the first two lines with "Dry."

Dextrose Monohydrate = Corn Sugar = priming sugar = dry corn syrup

All the same.

Just like DME is 25% more concentrated than liquid, Corn sugar is 25% more concentrated than corn syrup.
