I prefer to use oz measurements for priming because CS can be compressed in a cup...which means you can use too much and overprime.

If you don't have at least some pressure in the keg (co2 tank) the lid most likely won't seal properly. You add less sugar to the keg because to get the proper seal you need to put some co2 pressure in the keg, and hence it is already under some pressure. In the bottle, the headspace needs to pressurize before the co2 will remain disolved in the beer, with the keg you have already added some pressure and filled the head space with co2.

What about using DME instead of corn sugar? Do you still cut it in half?
