Corn Sugar affects efficiency?

Postby ibrubeer » Sun Jan 14, 2018 7:33 pm

I brewed a cream ale and added 1 lb of corn sugar at the end of the boil. My efficiency numbers are coming up strange (too high) though. In the Analysis Tab, I assume that the Kettle gravity is in reference to the END of the boil, correct?

It’s probably due to the sugar being 100% fermentable.

I can't be the first person to add corn sugar or Belgian candi sugar. What's the proper way to add this to a recipe?

Kettle gravity refers to the gravity before evaporation. Even if you add the sugar at the end, it will still be included in the kettle gravity.
