Hi i have been looking at bulk priming and they say for medium carb
to use 90 to 140 grams for 23litres of Dextrose.. and on my Dextrose brewing suger it says not suitable for priming or second stage fermentation
Whats up with that???
Cheers Daza

I don't know why your package would say that. That's odd.

Dextrose = glucose = corn sugar and that is what the majority of us use for priming our batches at bottling time.

Are you sure that your package contains Dextrose and not Maltodextrin?
