Default Priming With DME ??

Hey guys I was about to bottle my Honey Ale and I realized I don't have any priming sugar like I thought I did. I forgot how much DME I can prime with, can you help me out ?

How much DME will prime 5 gallons of beer ?

I believe around 1.25 cups for regular carbonation.

• Dry malt extract – increase by 20-25% (this depends on the brand and may take a little trial and error)

Cool carbonation calc that can be adjusted for DME, corn sugar or honey...
