Sounds like you don't have a bottling bucket? 1/2tsp would be ok. but a bottling bucket to bulk prime is def better. More even carbonation from bottle to bottle.

The biggest problem with measuring such small amounts is that even small errors create relatively large variations.

A bottling bucket spreads that error over a larger amount of beer. Plus it's way easier to bottle from a spigot than from a racking cane.
