Sucrose (Table Sugar)


This is just plain white sugar also known as table sugar. Chemically it is the disaccharide sucrose composed of one glucose unit and one fructose unit. In its refined form it is usally found as small white crystals that easily disolve in water and wort. It can be used in the boil as a source of fermentable sugars that tends to reduce body and mouthfeel. Brown sugar is just sucrose with molasses (removed during refining) added back to it.
