I registered here just now because about 10 min ago I was transfering my "corona clone" into a secondary fermenter and my buddy misunderstood me when I was explaining the homebrew process. After I finished racking to the second, he dumped my bottling primer into the fermenter! I am "newer" to this but am I to assume that the batch is ruined? Help anyone?

I don't understand what you mean. You racked the beer, and then he added the bottling sugar?

You're not bottling today? You had the sugar all dissolved, or did he just dump in a few ounces of sugar?

If he just dumped in 5 ounces of sugar, it'll be fine. Just let it ferment out, and buy more sugar to prime with in a couple of weeks!

Sorry. Yes I have a lot of frustration and anger with him right now. While I was racking into the secondary,I was explaining how natural carbonation results from adding sugar at the bottling process. He saw "glass carboy" and thought "bottle process" and dumped in the priming sugar while I was elevating the racking cane. 3/4 cup of sugar. Will it affect the alcohol content?

Marginally, I think I read somewhere on here about a cup of priming sugar adds like .002 to your gravity

Just wait a few days to a week for it to ferment the priming sugar that he added. Then add more priming sugar and bottle.

Welcome to HBT! Sorry but that is just a tiny bit funny. To me, not to you I'm sure.
It shouldn't effect your brew much at all. Ferment the sugar our for a couple weeks and proceed as normal. Don't forget to buy more priming sugar.

They're right- it'll be fine. Just wait at least a week or two, to make sure it fermented all the way, and to clear up a bit and condition, since you just moved it to secondary.

You may have increased your ABV by about .25% or so.

Ensure you're bottling in 100% UV transparent bottles infused with skunk gland extract. Always worth it to go the extra mile.
