Default First time bottling and screwed up priming sugar

Hello,

Today I was bottling my first batch of beer. I made the mistake of pouring the priming sugar dry into the bottling bucket without boiling into a syrup first. For some reason I thought it would all mix together as the beer was siphoned into it. So I bottled all my beer and then looked in the bucket and saw a bunch of sugar...looks like about all of it. Any ideas?

-Doug

chances are some got into the bottles but not enough. maybe let em go for a week to avoid bombs then open them and put a carb drop in each..

i would assume the ones towards the end of the bottling line got more than the beginning. if you have them in order maby leave the last 6 pack or so alone and carb drop the rest.
