Bottle conditioning with different sugars

So I am going to make my first Quad (loosely based on 3P) and was wondering if I could use that soft belgian candi sugar at bottling for carbing/conditioning. I would rather bottle condition this one over kegging it (as I will assume it will be months before it is really ready. And thought that the belgian candi sugar would add a nice note. if so should I use the same amount as corn sugar?

Thanks.

It won’t add any notes. You’re better off using regular old cane or corn sugar.

Each different sugar would have a different amount. I use NBs priming calculator.

You CAN use any sugar you want, although the amount used will vary depending on fermentability and such.

In practice though, the amount of sugar you use for priming is too small to make a flavor difference. Just use ordinary table sugar, its cheap, readily available, and works as good as anything else.

Awesome. Thanks.

I have some to use so I figured I might as well.
