Corn sugar is more easily consumable for the yeast which to me means that your brew will carb up lil quicker. To most new comers I know it's hard to wait for bottle conditioning. So using corn sugar may shave a few days off the wait. Just my 2 cents
good luck,

Where do you get all this terrible information? None of these things you say are true. You are not helping by spreading false information.

You accidentally all the priming sugar? I was waiting for someone to say something like that.

Look I'm not trying to turn this into a chemistry thread. Table sugar is a Sucrose which is 1 glucose + 1 fructose molecule which then must be hydrolyzed (split) with water to ferment. With alcohol in the brew who knows the effect it has on the conversion. Corn sugar is less complex. I did a lot of reading on this already as I was looking for a good answer. There are number of carbon atoms per monosaccharide molecule etc,etc. There are a lot of variables involved. All and all the conclusion I came up with was that corn sugar is the better bet. IMO

Sucrose is the organic compound commonly known as table sugar. The molecule is a disaccharide composed of glucose and fructose with the molecular formula C12H22O11.

Dextrose is glucose a monosaccharide, C6H1206.

They are different, but not enough to make a bit of difference at all in fermentation. Yeast readily digest fructose, just as easily as glucose.

Not when you are talking about less than 3% of the fermenatables (priming sugar).

And wow, Pete's post is the most absurd thing I have ever read haha

What Peterock is alluding to is the fact that the yeast must enzymatically cleave the sucrose into separate parts before even having the opportunity to consume the glucose OR fructose, which is true. I doubt skipping this step would shave off an hour, much less days, but this I can't honestly say for 100% certain.
