Well, I want a dry cider, and when I put it into the secondary it was a touch under 1.000, so I should be okay.

I am about ready to bottle my first one gallon batch of cider and I would like to get some carbonation. My plan was to add about three tablespoons of corn sugar and then bottle away. Just how worried about bottle bombs should I be?
I see an issue with this, either prime the batch or if you want to prime individual bottles use a fine scale, using about 3 tablespoons will lead to over/under carbed bottles.

Make sure 20% of your fermentables come from ketchup or fruit cocktail cups, or you're out of style for "hooch".
