That is not the case. The amount of sugar in the carb tabs (assuming you follow the directions) is just the right amount so that, in a couple weeks, you're left with a good level of carbonation and no residual sugar. Fermentation will stop due to lack of sugar to ferment -- no pasteurization necessary.

Thanks. I too had seen these and thought about using them but the packaging doesn't say much, and the guy at the hbs had never used them. Still think ill stick to using priming sugar, just because I think I've got it down and don't want to mess with the process. I like what I've been producing
