mixing priming sugar
This may belong in the beginner section, so please bear with me...
I've always bottled with corn sugar and have come familiar with what to expect. Bottling tomorrow and only have 2 oz when I normally use 6. I have about 8 oz of wheat DME that I could supplement with. I was thinking of using the sugar and adding about 6 oz of the DME. Think that will work? Not that it really matters, but it's a 1.060 OG Pale Ale.

You should use one or the other because they have diffrent gravitys, If you dont want to go get more corn sugar and you dont want to use table sugar, Then use about 1 1/4 cup of the wheat DME and you will have to let it sit for about 4 weeks to carb rather than 2.
