Any of the above products can be substituted with ingredients available at your local home brew shop (LHBS). For example if a recipe that you have done previously called for a package of Coopers Light Dry Malt 500g this could be replaced with 500g of any Light Dry Malt you can get, if your are doing a dark beer or stout you could use a Dark Dry Malt for sightly darker richer beer. If you used it in a beer and you thought the beer could do with a slightly lighter mouth feel or be a bit drier you could swap the Light Dry Malt with some Dextrose. Experimenting like this is fun and can lead to some great beers.
- Corn Sugar = Dextrose
- Corn Syrup = Maltodextrin
Try and keep the simple sugars (dextrose, white sugar, etc.) at or below 20% of the total fermentables.
