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.
