I used the brewers best kit for this holiday ale. I believe it was 1lb corn sugar.Since I've placed it in a warm area now, the carbonation is working. I've cracked in open yesterday an low and behold "bubbles". I will keep the bottle twist method in my pocket. Thanks

yea one lb in the boil would be fine to boost gravity, but one pound for carbing is way to much, the usual is 5 oz per five gallon batch, you almost tripled that amount, i'd wait it out and see what happens.

Sorry for the confusion but the 1 LB of sugar was for the wort and the priming sugar was in much smaller pouch. I can see how you might want to wear a helmet if I added that much of sugar.

assuming the smaller bag was ~5 oz you should be fine if you leave it alone for a few more weeks in the low 60s, less time will be needed in teh low 70s
