ok i know this may sound like a real noob question but i don't know because i have never done this before except with a mr beer kit and only one batch at that. i want to try making EdWort's Award Winning Apfelwein and i was wondering if i could use kayro corn syrup instad of corn sugar they are pretty much the same thing right? and also if i could use quick acting yeast like what you get in the store for making bread. any ideas or suggestions?

Don't use that syrup, if you have too use table sugar. Definately don't use bread/cake yeast. Go to your local home brew shop and buy montrachet for a $1.25

While you are at it you might as well pick up corn sugar.

Don't waste you time & $$$ with cheap substitutes. You will only be disappointed when the results are lackluster.

Corn syrup is mainly glucose, corn sugar is dextrose. Corn syrup can also contain other added ingredients, such as vanilla flavouring. While you can use it, it's not a one to one substitute.

Bread yeast will ferment sugars into alcohol, which means you can use it. However, different strains of yeast have different characteristics, and the things that make a good bread yeast are not the same things that make for a good wine/cider/beer yeast. Using it is likely to change the result drastically.

In summary: the substitutions that you're considering will have unpredictable effects on the wine. If you're prepared to accept the possibility of failure the ingredients and time cost wouldn't be overly high, so you could give it a try. Even though you might end up with something drinkable, it won't be Edwort's Apfelwein.

You *can make beer from your local supermarkets products, but you'll make much better beer if you buy the right products from a homebrew shop.
