Cane Sugar is commonly used in beer brewing for its ability to enhance the flavor profile of the brew. It imparts a sweet and slightly caramelized taste to the beer, adding depth and complexity to its overall flavor. This sweetness can help balance out bitter or hoppy flavors, resulting in a more well-rounded brew.
In addition to enhancing the taste of beer, Cane Sugar also serves as a fermentable ingredient that provides extra fuel for yeast during fermentation. As yeast consumes the sugars present in Cane Sugar, it produces alcohol and carbon dioxide, contributing to both the ABV (alcohol by volume) and carbonation levels of the finished beer.
Cane Sugar is typically used in lighter-bodied beers such as pale ales, lagers, pilsners, and certain Belgian styles like tripels and saisons. Its properties include being highly fermentable and easily dissolved into wort (unfermented beer), making it convenient for brewers to use during various stages of brewing.
