"Is it true that you add 1 cup of sugar... twice? So that the total amount of sugar would be about 2 cups + 1 tbsp?"

"The red peppers used in gochujang are one of the mildest of all peppers. According to my tastebuds, they have a richer and more earthy flavor than other hot peppers. The mildness allows for you to use a lot of it and get the rich red color common to Korean foods, yet still have it be not too spicy. Cayenne has way more heat, but not as much as, say, habanero powder. Do not use cayenne as a substitute for gochujang or Korean red pepper powder."
