Turbinado vs. Light Brown Sugar?

(1/2) > >>

hollnagel:
Hi there - I've been looking into several Scottish Ale and ESB recipes, and have noticed that turbinado and light brown sugar are often used interchangeably.  I have only brewed with light brown sugar for such recipes.  Does anyone have some experience with both?  Any comments on differences in taste?

denny:
The few times I've use turbinado it's seemed to have much more flavor than borwn sugar

majorvices:
Can't imagine you are going to get a huge flavor difference with Tubinado. Might be something very, very slight. I'd try a side by side batch to see.

I've used it tripels a few times and in my quad.  In the tripels you can really taste the difference IMO.
