Default How much priming sugar per gallon?

Hi all,

I've got one gallon of saison set aside to which I added puree mango... now to bottle, but how much sugar? I know it's typically 5 ounces or so for 5 gallons, but I have no way to weigh and have no idea what 1 ounce looks like (teaspoons?) For what it's worth, I'll probably use darker cane sugar.

Thanks!

12 tablespoons = 3/4 cup

So I guess 1/5 of this would be about 2 1/2 tablespoons.

Just FYI, measuring by volume can be a pain. I know you said you can't measure weight now, but I'd recommend measuring by weight whenever possible, and it can be done on the cheap. I got a small digital scale at Target for ~$10 or so and it does the job nicely.

1 oz per gallon works well.
