I like this one personally, no math required:
http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/recipator/carbonation.html

FYI, the carbonation per style recommendations are a little off (IMO).
It's still a great calculator, just plug-in the # of gallons, temperature and desired carbonation level. Output provided in Grams or Ounces of Corn Sugar, Sucrose, DME or Honey - you do weigh your bottling sugar before adding don't ya?


- M

p.s. Did anyone else notice the zombie revival? Must've been a full moon or something.

Wow T29 I plugged my Caribou Slobber into that formula and came up with 2.3 oz for 4.5 gallons of beer. Considering the standard amount they give you is 5oz its no wonder some of the extract kits I made last year got over-carbonated!
