Use it to make margaritas all the time but never brewed with it.

if you mean brewing, tried once in a small batch of mead and it didnít ferment (only case!), maybe it contains sulfites that prevent fermentation, so check the label...

Itíll ferment fast and seems a bit hot, IMO. Itís not a particularly flavorful sugar.

I used it to prime a bottle of leftover beer after filling a keg. Donít know how much, just eyeballed it. It was the best bottle conditioned beer Iíve ever made - it had a fuller, creamier body than the kegged version.

Itís supposed to be low-GI which I assume means it has more complex sugars in it. Donít know what though...

Itís mostly fructose, along with glucose. Itís not as evenly split as honey, consisting mostly of fructose, though.

I have made wonderful meads with it. Get the organic stuff, and it ferments out bone dry. It also needs a lot of time to age, coming out really hot. It also needs nutrients for better flavor.
