First time bottling
 
Hi everyone , maybe its a stupid question but im really thinkin, when transfering beer from secondary to bottleing bucket , will the whirlpool REALLY mix the beer with sugar or should i mix it gently with something?

PS sorry for my crapy english!

if a full 5 gallon batch at normal carbonation volume, it's 3/4 cup corn sugar to 2 cups water, boil a couple minutes add to bottling bucket and then siphon the beer onto that

it mixes just fine that way

and your english is many gooder than mine

so, where are you from?

Here's a priming sugar calculator for priming to style by weight; http://www.tastybrew.com/calculators/priming.html

Temperature of the beer currently.

You should be using about 1 cup of table sugar (sucrose) for a 5 gallon batch. Again, it's best to make a simple syrup of 2 cups boiling water to 1 cup sugar and then add that to your bottling bucket before racking your wort onto it. There's no harm in stirring it while it is still wort. In fact, extra oxygenation from stirring is encouraged at this stage to help the yeast do their job.

No,they're asking for the highest temp during fermentation. I've used both though.

Dude??? If you're priming it for carbonation,then it's no longer "wort",it's beer & oxygen will ruin it! Never stir beer roughly at this point,unless you enjoy wet cardboard.
