Default Newbie question

Going to make my first wine from kit.It asked for 3kg sugar.I accidentally ordered 2kg.What will happened if I add 1kg "demerara sugar"?Will it change the color and taste?

It will change the flavor, but who knows...it might make it better.

What wine kit?

It's a "Solomon Grundy Medium Sweet White"

Just for a try to see how it's done on the cheap.

Ouch...

Wouldn't have wasted my money on that. 7 days is just long enough to put it into secondary fermentation for another month or two, not to be drinking it.
