Default How much priming sugar

My brewing over the weekend yielded about 4 gallons after evaporation and am curious how much priming sugar I should use for this amount.

6/10 of a cup. Basically just a little over a cup, thats if you follow the 3/4cup Dextrose per 5 gal batch

Fixed that for you.

You can also weigh it if you have a good scale. 1 oz per gallon, so you'd need 4 oz.

Do they give out 4 oz or 5 oz with a kit?

I always thought it was 4 so...dividing 5 gals by 4 you get .8 oz per gallon.

I've only done one kit, but I think I got 6 oz with that. I remember thinking it was a little too much.

I wouldn't trust the kits anyway, I trust John Palmer

The Brewers best kits come with 5 oz, and it nicely fills 3/4 cup. Can't speak for anything else.

Couldn't you just add a gallon of water to make it 5?
