I have a bag of brewer's sugar, and underneath it it says (dextrose/invert/corn sugar).

Can I use this for priming? If so, ~3/4 a cup for 5 gallons?

Yes, that's perfect for priming! I weigh my sugar- I use 4 ounces per 5 gallons. I guess that's pretty close to 3/4 cup, I think.

Yeah, what Yooper said.

If you were feeling more adventurous you could check out the priming sugar calculator on the www.kotmf.com website...

...which lets you work out how much sugar you'd need to get a style-specific level of carbonation.
