The answer is yes and no. It would depend on what you are making and the quantity of the sugar. Brown sugar tends to be a little moister and sweeter. I would start by using about 20% less than white sugar and add up to about 10% less for taste.

The two sugars are almost same, only mosture content is different. If you add mollases to white sugar you will get the moist brown sugar.
