My description is a little confusing.
Math works out like this:
Needed 8.5oz of corn sugar. I've been finding that you generally only need about a fuzzy 90% of that amount if you're using sucrose instead of corn sugar.
I needed 3.5 additional ounces of corn sugar. 90% of 3.5 is about 3.15 ounces. I measured and added 3.2 ounces of sucrose in addition to 5 ounces of corn sugar. 8.2 ounces of sugars total.

I'd watch those very closely.
Checked my math against. http://www.tastybrew.com/calculators/priming.html
. They had a pull down that mentions the carbonation for a wheat beer. Don't recall the other resource I consulted. Either way, neither of them differentiated between recommendations for a keg or bottle. -shrugs- Just need to do better research in the future. Happens.
Thanks for the table link by the way. That's a fantastic chart, haven't seen anything like that.
