You can use the same amount of white sugar plus 1 oz of light molasses per cup of sugar.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

I just put it in the juice and shake it up. It gets stuck in the funnel if you try to pour through, but if you pour some juice on top of it, it will go through with the juice and you have it where you need it to shake it up.

I agree white sugar is better, but I've liked the results in the places where I've used the brown sugar thus far. I just have to take a few extra steps to be able to manage it.

How small is your funnel? The funnel I use with carboys is a plastic soda bottle with the bottom cut off. I think I used a 1-liter bottle, but a 2-liter would be even better. I took an angle grinder to the flange around the threads so it would go into the carboy a little deeper.
