Peter Greweling -- a master confectioner and author of a wonderful confection text book -- disagrees. He spends quite a bit of effort explaining the differences in cocoa butter fats, but dismisses the difference in cane and beet sugar in a sentence or two. Beet sugar refining has improved dramatically in the last few decades, and as long as you buy good quality stuff, you can't tell which is which, without a pretty sophisticated lab. (A much more likely source of the problem for the cook mentioned in the story is the grain size of the sugar, which changes the rate at which it will go into solution, and may mean it doesn't fully dissolve, and leaves grains for sugar to come out of solution.) The SF chronicle article is a worthless source, not least because it neglects to mention that one of the major reasons cane sugar commands a premium price are artificial price supports in the form of tariffs and import quotas, that push the price of sugar in the US well above world market price.

I will admit that I have been a beet sugar bigot - having grown up in the Thumb - my dad grew beets and both grand parents worked in the sugar factory! I'll bet my next angle food cake comes out better! I think I will make 3 beers, one each with corn, beet and cane sugar - just to see the difference - a CAP I think.

This is a *very* useful tool in competitions. The copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of it that I have is getting quite fuzzy. If anyone has made an electronic copy of this in Word or Excel or even PDF, I would be most grateful if you would pass it on. The competition is January 31, so speed would also be appreciated. thanks, dion - -- Dion Hollenbeck Email: hollen at woodsprite.com Home Page: http://www.woodsprite.com Brewing Page: http://hbd.org/hollen Toys: 98 4Runner, 86 4x4 PU Return to table of contents
