Why do you recommend using brewing sugar instead of household sugar?
Brewing Sugar is Dextrose Monohydrate. It is different to standard household sugar, which is sucrose. Household sugar takes longer to be absorbed by the yeast, which can then produce bi-products and impurities. This can affect the final taste. If you use household sugar, you may end up with a less satisfactory product at the end.
What are the major benefits of brewing sugar over household sugar?
The benefits include
- Dissolving more quickly;
- Fermenting more easily;
- Can produce a higher yield;
- Can produce a cleaner flavour.
