Default Boddington's Bitter Recipe Question

Hello,

I'm going to brew a 5 gallon batch of Boddington's bitter and am wondering about invert sugar. I can't get my hands on Lyle's Golden Syrup, but my reading seems to indicate that invert sugar is actually standard table sugar. Is this true?

I'm wondering if I can simply use table sugar instead of Lyle's Golden Syrup. One recipe I have said to use brown sugar and I'm not sure about that either.

The really nice characteristic of Boddington's is the creamy consistency and I hope to achieve that in my home brew batch.

Thank you in advance for your responses.

Invert sugar is different to table sugar. There are a couple of recent posts on it.
Maybe you can search or someone can post a link.
I've got to run just now.

I remember reading (somewhere) that you can make inverted sugar out of table sugar. Google it.

You can.
Heat it and add acid.

If you haven't already done so, check Whole Foods - Lyle's is there. I was making a Trippel clone that called for it (before I knew what it was) and my LHBS guy recommended replacing it with pancake syrup if I couldn't find it (not maple syrup, like Aunt Jamimah). Once I figured out what it was, I tried the Whole Foods and found it. It's on an Ethnic Food aisle, with the "English" foods. I thought it was funny.

If you haven't seen this, check out this post:
