To ensure good, consistent carbonation, we recommend you stay with the recommended quantity of white granulated cane sugar. The priming sugar is added for the sole purpose of creating carbonation, and the amount is not enough to affect the flavor. Molasses, brown sugar and honey may contain unfermentable sugars and contribute different sugar levels, and in honey possible bug parts or hairs, which can adversely affect your carbonation.

While you can experiment with them in your wort, we recommend you stay away from carbonating with them, or you may wind up with flat beer, gushers, or burst bottles.
