I have a batch of Irish Red Ale in secondary now, not sure yet if want to bottle from keg or to carbonate in bottles. I have 5-6 190gram packs of dextrose leftover from some brew house kits. Can I use this to bottle carb? Any special process?

5 oz of dextrose carbonated 5 gallons of beer nicely. I think 190 grams is more than that though and might be a bit high for an Irish red. To use dextrose just dissolve it in 2 cups boiling water. Pour this into your bottling bucket and rack the beer onto it. The swirling action mixes it all up nicely. Then you just bottle and cap.

Thanks, I've always bottled from keg or used corn sugar to prime.

Corn sugar generally is dextrose
