Default How much AJ conc. for priming?

How much AJ concentrate should you use for a 2 gallon batch to prime the bottles for carbonation? 1/2 can, full can?
Thanks

Depends on how much sugar is in the concentrate, should be listed in the nutrition facts. I like a little more carbonation in cider than in most beer, about 35g/gallon.

Basically, I add the AJC to taste, record the gravity (so I can reproduce it) wait for it to carb up, pasteurize to stop fermentation (using Papers stove top method with a plastic bottle as a guide) and drink. If you are only doing 2 gallons you could probably let it carb and then stick it in your fridge.

I like my cider pretty dry, one can of Seneca AJC for 5 gallons is my sort of go to but to each their own.
