I read in a book i beleive it was the alaskan bootleggers bible. That a small amount of lemon juice would concert sucrose to dextrose. And since its a small amount u wont taste it.

That might be the case, but sucrose is a dimer (two molecules - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucrose) You'd be left with half glucose and half fructose.

Dissolving sucrose in hot water would achieve the same thing, though.

Just use sucrose (table sugar) and let the yeast do it. Sucrose works exactly as well as dextrose (aka glucose or corn sugar) when bottling. Use 10% less table sugar than the same amount of dextrose (dextrose holds moisture; about 9% of its weight; sugar is crystalline and dry).

To make sure it's well dissolved in the wort, just add the table sugar to a pan with a cup of water, heat/stir till dissolved, then add direction to wort, stir, bottle.

Yes, I know this is a zombie thread.
