Default Bottle Priming, How Much Sugar ?

I've been using a conical and have been transferring to the bottle bucket and adding priming sugar (5 oz) prior to bottling. I've learned to hate transferring and want to bottle directly from the conical. I do all-grain and partial-mash/extract's. I dump the trub and yeast quite often over the 2 + weeks I leave the beer in the "secondary". My Question is how much sugar should I use per oz to get good carbonation ? I've seen this done on the Mr. Beer system and was wondering if the same amount applies.

What do you mean per ounce? Ounce of beer? One ounce of sugar per gallon of beer.

Looking to know grams of table sugar per oz of beer. Or how much table sugar per 12oz bottle and I can calculate it out from there.

128 ounces in a gallon, 28 grams in an ounce.
28/128=.218 grams per ounce of beer, or 2.62 grams per 12 ounce bottle.

Just a follow up.

Solved the problem.
SWMBO bought me a kegging system for my birthday. Along with the mother-in-law getting a new fridge, I am now living the keggerator lifestyle.

No more bottles to fill or transferring!!! I can now fill my kegs directly from the conical.
