sugar or DME


Sugar or DME for bottling your beer?
I have heard that a lot of corn or table sugar will make your beer thin and bodyless..... I'm bottling next week and I may try some DME some coopers carbonation tablets and some sugar.

A *lot* of sugar will change the flavour of your beer.
The small amount used for bottle conditioning won't make any difference.
A better idea is to chuck the bottles, buy a kegging system and gas with CO2.
Never wash a bottle again. Bliss.

24 beers in a carton. 24 hours in a day. Hmm...?

You have to "wash" the bottles?
Thanks I'll plan on using pellets to make it simple.... rather than sweating the minor details.
