  • Simple and Refined Sugar
  • Dextrose is considered a better quality sugar than your standard table sugar (sucrose), remaining affordable and fairly convenient to purchase. It is a monosaccharide (one sugar), meaning it doesn’t need breaking down for fermentation, unlike sucrose, a disaccharide (two sugars) that requires the yeast to break it down. Dextrose doesn’t produce off-flavours and is sometimes considered to create a better-bodied beer than sucrose.
  • Fermenting with Dextrose: Dextrose is 100% fermentable, but you need to slightly increase the amount of Dextrose to get the same result as Sugar, meaning for a ferment requiring 6kg of Sugar, you would use slightly more than 8 kilos of Dextrose.
