    I use ordinary table sugar. Have used brown sugar a few times.
    Just use an online carb calculator to measure what you need.

    Batch priming will also make life easier

    Batch priming takes all the faffing away...I use dextrose.

    People who've bought carbonation drops should get compensation, just like PPI. I saw one bag for £4.20 for 160g. Over 50 times the cost of table sugar. It's SubTorps all over again!
