Priming sugar uses


Rudy Brooks — Junction City, Kansas asks,

I Just bought some all-grain kits with the priming sugar included. I keg and force carbonate so I now have a box full of priming sugar packets. I just thought, why not add the sugar during the boil. Any drawbacks to this plan?

Rudy, I like your ideas! This question reminds me of lyrics from The Clash tune “Rudi Can’t Fail.” Now we get a rude and a recklessWe been seen lookin’ cool an’ specklessWe
