Default Corn Sugar vs Granulated Sugar

I've been dissolving 5 lbs, granulated sugar per 5 gallons fresh pressed cider for the past few years with good results. This year I would like to try liquid corn sugar, which I think is also called high fructose corn syrup to skip the step of dissolving.

What is the equivalent amount of corn sugar syrup to 5 lbs granulated? Where do you buy corn sugar syrup? Cant find it.

High fructose corn syrup is NOT liquid dextrose. It's chemically altered to have more fructose and less glucose.

Ok....I wasnt sure on the high fructose sugar. I think what I need is a liquid dextrose. There is a product made by Cargill called Clearsweet. Now if I could only find who sells it.

Now that I found where to get Corn Sugar in 50 lb quantity, Does anyone know if the ratio is the same or different assuming I used one lb granulated cane sugar to one gallon cider?
