Stupid question

I have the NB Irish Red extract kit.
One of the ingredients I don’t recognize.
I forgot what the package said(it wasn’t anything obvious) it contains some small clear/white balls of what looks like maybe gummies or something. Is this the priming sugar for bottlling? I think it said something about carbonation on the package. Its definatley not my yeast, hops or grains. I’m just kegging so I don’t priming sugar. Thanks

Carbonation drops. An easy way to carbonate beer by the bottle. Simply drop in one for a 12 oz. bottle, or two for a 22 ounce bottle. Each package contains 60 drops.

I have some. But never used them.

or maybe this.

Brewer’s Best Conditioning Tabs

This unique priming sugar is in tablet format and is made from dextrose, dry malt extract, and heading powder. To use, add 3 to 5 tablets per 12 oz. bottle depending on desired carbonation level, and condition for 1 week. Each 4.5 ounce pack contains approximately 250 tablets.

I was going to say candi sugar. But it is not listed in the ingredients.

You must have chosen the drops/tabs for your priming sugar option.

I’ve never seen them include this as the priming sugar. You might give them a call and see what is up.

Thanks, it was definately the conditioning tablets that I received.
I was going to keg this time in the future I might bottle.
So that’s not good to use for bottling then?

I’ve heard a lot of people say they get inconsistent results with these things.

I’ve used them for onsey-twosy beers that I bottle from batch left-overs after kegging. They work just fine as long as you are not a stickler for precise carbonation level.
