I don’t have any priming sugar, is there anything else I can use to carbonate my beer?
If you can’t wait until your next shipment from Midwest, there are several options for carbonating your beer with something other than priming sugar. Just about anything that has sugar in it could be used, but here are a few examples and the amounts that you need:

Honey Maple syrup Molasses Using honey-1 cup for bottling and <½ cup for kegging. Using molasses-1 cup for bottling and <½ cup for kegging.

Brown sugar

Table sugar

Using maple syrup-1¼ cup for bottling and 5/8 cup for kegging. Using brown sugar-2/3 cup for bottling and <1/3 cup for kegging. Using cane sugar (table sugar)-1 cup for bottling and <1/3 cup for kegging. It isn’t a bad idea to mix these with a little water and boil before adding to your bottling bucket. That way everything breaks down and the yeast has an easier time using the sugars. Keep in mind that these different sugars will also leave a different flavor in your beer. The sugar that you use can be just one more thing to make your beer different than anything else out there. Perhaps brown sugar with a brown ale or a stout? That little extra sweetness can make a good beer even better.
