Default Adding priming sugar

Should you wait until the 2 cups of water is boiling before adding sugar into it or heat both up at the same time?

I let the water boil for a few minutes,then take it off the heat & add the measured amount of sugar. Stir till the water clears again. I let it cool down before adding to the bottling bucket.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I use 1 cup of water and about 4-5 oz of dextrose. I put the dextrose in before I heat it up in the microwave, and let it boil for a few seconds before taking it out of the microwave. Stirring is typically not necessary. I dump the near-boiling solution directly in the bottling bucket and rack onto it immediately.

It really doesn't matter.

I put water and sugar in cold and bring it to a boil.

It's really just up to what works for you. There's no wrong or right way.

I also rack onto the near boiling sugar. Kills a little yeast but it doesn't matter, if anything it is a little extra nutrient for carbing.

If you kill the yeast you don't need the sugar, cause there's nobody home to carb the bottle.

YOu won't kill all that much yeast doing that.

+1 racking onto the near boiling cup of water may kill 1% of the yeast.

When I bottle, the first thing I do is make the priming solution. I then let it sit out while I get everything else ready. By the time I get everything all sanitized and ready to rack, the solution will be cooler.

True true. I was just saying its not a good practice. Cool is better, I also keep the solution covered with sanitized tin foil while it cools. Cheers
