What it is:
Sucrose is also known as table sugar. It is a sugar that is obtained from sugar cane, sugar beets, sorghum, or malted grain. It is a compound of the sugars glucose and fructose.
Sucrose is a base malt and can be 5-10 percent of your grist. Of course, the actual amount you need depends on the style of beer that you are making. Use our brewing calculators to compute the exact amount you need to achieve your specific original gravity and color targets.
Add sucrose directly to the boiling wort or to your beer just prior to bottling.
