Default Should i use Cane sugar at all?

Just wondering if i screwed up my belgian strong dark ale by adding 2 cups of cane sugar to the boil? I also added 1 lb of belgian candy sugar.

Whats the thought?

No problem. It'll be a little stronger, probably 8-10 gravity points and ~1% ABV

I'd bet it will dry it out a bit. You'll probably see a low FG.

Demerara sugar (raw cane) would've been better with it's light brown sugar laced with honey flavor. A bit more complexity than just adding ABV.

What's your recipe? 3lbs of sugar could (potentially) be a large portion of your fermentables, which isn't always desirable.
