Default Apple Concentrate Priming

If this has been posted before just send the link, however I am ready to bottle about 2.5G of cider and want to use Apple Concentrate to bottle carb them. Has anybody done this? Also, is it the same ratio to say regular priming sugars? Thanks.

Mathematical you use 13 FL oz of Treetop concentrate to 5 gallons. So you need 6.5 FL oz for 2.5 gallons. It is not the same as 5 oz per 5 gallons.

I've used straight juice to prime. The juice I use has 28 g (~1 oz) of sugars per cup. I use 1 cup of juice per gallon, then add another ~half cup to make up for the extra volume I add. With concentrate, do the same thing. Calculate how many grams of sugar is in it, then add enough for ~28 grams of sugar per gallon cider.
