Default Priming with brown sugar?

How much will the flavor of the priming sugar effect the taste of the beer. I am about to bottle my first brew and was considering using brown sugar. Anyone have any experience or advice for priming with brown sugar?

Very slight, as brown sugar is mostly white sugar with a tiny amount of molasses. Use the same amount.
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!"
