Priming a small Batch
Hi there !
I've read a lot about priming but nearly all of them give amounts of Sugar and Water for 5 Gallons of Beer .
I've made a small batch ( 0.8 Gallon ) and in two days I'm going to bottle it .
The calculated amount of Dextrose is 0.69 Oz.
I'd like to know , in how much Water should it be dissolved ?
Use carb tablets (see links)
,but order from http://homebrewery.com/beer/beer-other-fermentables.shtml as they only charge USPS shipping which will save you a lot on shipping
The 0.7-0.8 oz by weight sounds about right. I wouldn't use less than 1/2 cup of water. Any less than that, and you probably risk scorching the sugar. But, I would second the carb tabs. You are talking about a yield of 8-10 bottles max. You just put 3 or 4 tabs in each bottle (read the package to be sure), fill and cap. They are carbed up in 7-10 days. I use them for all my small batches.
