      What turns your crank? Many questions asked are a shortcut to that which
      many have experimented with. No problem there, but the fun (or futile
      endeavor) of this hobby is to see what's over the next hill. Try any sugar.
      Let us know how it did. Read stuff. If you had, you would not had this
      question.
      Knowledge is power.

      Have another drink and calm down.better still have several.
      There is nothing wrong in asking questions and learning

      I heartily agree with Ellathai2000.

      There are so many different types of sugars that it can be confusing to
      someone new to the hobby to know which can be used and which should be
      avoided. Many 'old hands' would be hard pressed to describe all the
      different types of sugars there are, and which are fermentable. In fact, of
      all the many aldohexoses there are, and all the different isomers of them
      that exist, only glucose and fructose are readily fermentable. Ordinary cane
      sugar from the supermarket is primarily sucrose, which is a disaccharide
      made up of one glucose and one fructose molecule, each bonded tightly
      together. Want to tell us how this bond is broken up so that it can be
      rendered fermentable, or is that just another stupid question?
