Sugar, good for beer! (Posted on 2/21/14)
60% of the time it works, every time Review by Mike
Rating
Always gets the job done and doesn't adversely affect the flavor of the finished product. I've switched to kegging over the last few years, but still use this tried and true method if I'm not in a hurry for carbonation. Great prices, too! (Posted on 1/3/14)
No issues Review by DM

Does what it's supposed to do. Doesn't adversely affect flavor when bottling, makes bubbles. (Posted on 1/2/14)
The way to go Review by Nathaniel
Rating
As others mention, this is much cheaper than buying the individual packages. My recollection is that the package comes out to about 3/4 of a cup. I like to use 1 cup in a 5 gallon wort as it produces a nice head without excessive carbonation. (Posted on 12/28/13)
Ferments very cleanly Review by kourtney

When used as a priming sugar this product provides a clean finished product. It won't add any cider or overly sweet flavor like some other sugars. (Posted on 12/27/13)
Hasn't let me down yet Review by Scott
Rating
This priming sugar has been my go to since day 1. I've never had any issues with the sugar, and it has always provided a well-carbonated brew at the end of the day. I would recommend going with the largest bag as the little one might leave you in a bind (if you're not the most excellent planner). The big one offers you the freedom to brew and bottle without concern of running out. (Posted on 12/16/13)

A better way to get your corn sugar rather then buying it 5 ounces a a time a pound bag made sense to get. (Posted on 12/3/13)
Steady Review by Jeffrey

I don't have a kegging system (yet) and have relied upon these 5 oz. bags for carbonation since I started brewing 2 years ago. It might be worth consulting with some software to ensure that you use the proper amount because in most cases a full 5 ounces aren't needed but I've never had a problem with the quality of this product.

Saves money, allows more CO2 volume control Review by Aaron
Rating
I never had a problem carbonating with corn sugar. And the big bag is signifcantly cheaper per ounce than the little bags that you buy with kits. Also, you can better control carbonation volume to meet style guidelines or just do your own thing. (Posted on 10/13/13)

Works exactly as described Review by Aaron

I have used this a couple times, both for natural carbing and for late addition Gravity boost. Worked really well for each scenario! (Posted on 8/12/13)
I agree, it works Review by Lawrence
Rating
This is all I have ever used and have never had a problem with carbonation. Just last night I was with some fellow homebrewers who said that their research shows that for 5 gallons you would use about 3.5 ounces of sugar. I told them I have always used the standard 5 ounce pack, their reply was that my beers are bound to be over carbonated but that has never been a problem. (Posted on 3/18/12)

Pre-measured priming sugar that does exactly what it is suppose to do. What more can you really ask? (Posted on 6/28/11)
