VERY stupid question - I have no priming sugar in my bottling supplies box .. (Hello Kegging!)

I did want to bottle today, and wonder if stores normally stock corn sugar ..

Don't want to use honey or table sugar.

Do I have to order from AHBS ?

My local grocery and organic food stores carry corn sugar.

You can also use DME. 1 1/4 cup for a 5 gallon batch.

I got some in the lab. When you swing by to grab the yeast up, feel free to grab 3/4 cup for your bottling needs.
I'm not sure if the coop carries corn sugar. Check in the bulk section. Other then that your stuck going to the LHBS in NOHO.

You can also use regular table sugar. Just about 5% less to account for the difference in fermentability.

Thx for replies ..

I almost went with some brown sugar, but luckily a kit arrived from AHB which had what I needed ...

(Glib - I did call the CO-OP and they don't carry corn sugar - OH WELL)

I ordered an extra pound of priming sugar, even though I a SET on kegging !

Will bottle tonight !
