Revvy is right on cue... All my brews have different amount of priming depending on style and on gravity reading... Your best bet is to invest in a simple beer program and enter everything you used for the brew as a recipe and it will most likely calculate your priming amount.. Follow it and you will have great carbonation and a really nice head ..

Cheers

Thanks, I was in a no nonsense mood this a.m., but thanks to the help on the forum, I got beer in bottles. In my first ever batch of beer, I over primed and every single beer spewed foam when they were opened, so I didnt want to waste a bunch of time again.

Oh believe me once you enter your LME,sugar and yeast the program breaks it down by sugars used and gravity to determine primer ..

If for any reason you can't afford the program right now simply enter all ingredients with amounts used including yeast and anything else used and we (me or anyone here wil enter it on their beersmith and give you the numbers of what you may need...Most homebrewers are very meticulous and truly are here to help

Yeah. I've used the full measure of 5oz corn sugar provided with the 5 gal extract kits I've brewed. Never had any problems with bottle bombs, eruptions, beer too foamy, etc. All good so far.

I may try carb-to-style on a maibock kit I got for Christmas, but that looks to be not too much below 1oz/gal anyway.

You are correct, with your Maibock you may just use up the full 1oz per gallon... Per my priming calculator for a Bock at 70* with a 2.5 CO2 a 5 gallon batch would take 4.5 oz of corn sugar but as high as 6 oz of DME

Here's a question. I've never done a proper lager, so honestly I have no idea- are you letting it warm all the way back up to 70 after lagering? Or are you bottling while it's still relatively cold? Cause that'd make a huge difference in the amount needed.
