Default What to do with Priming Sugar...

I have been using Carb Tabs for sometime now. Is there any other use for priming sugar in home brewing?

Thanks and Cheers!

Mix it in your wort if you're not going to use it for priming.

It bumps up your ABV without imparting any additional flavor. Just add to wort before fermentation until you reach your desired gravity.
