Default Brown sugar for fermentation?

Hi, I am about to brew a Irish style stout, but I'm considering swapping Brown sugar for fermentation instead on regular dextrose. I know the sugar level is different and stuff. Do any of you guys have experienced this process?

Thanks!

My suggestion would be to find a more unprocessed sugar to add some flavor. Brown sugar is simply standard white cane sugar with a tiny bit of molasses thrown in for some color and flavor from what I've been told. No personal experience with brown sugar but I usually use something like piloncillo or something like that. Some may say use the brown though which would work and add some color and flavor.

Either would work just fine and neither will really impart any flavor.

Ok thanks for your answers, I used 1kg of it for a 23L batch. I'll post my results later.

cheers
