best primer for raw wood ?

I'm going to spray the celing in the basement white. Who's primer covers raw wood best? I do not plan on painting over the primer. I just want the celing to be brighter. Sherwin williams, or Benjamin Moore Or should I use whatever is cheapest?

You should never JUST prime, primer was not made as a finish coat.

Agreed. Primer will begin to look like poop after awhile. Spray it with a flat white after you use a good oil primer.
