Priming Sugar (Dextrose)


Priming sugar, often corn sugar or dextrose, is a crucial component in the beer bottling process. It's added to the beer just before bottling to provide the residual yeast with a food source. As the yeast consumes the sugar, it produces carbon dioxide, which carbonates the beer during the bottle conditioning period. This method not only adds the desired fizz to the beer but also contributes to its overall taste and mouthfeel.
