I usually add sugar at the 15 min mark (15 mins left in the boil). It adds simple sugars that the yeast can totally chew thru.

It says "boil size 3.57 gallons" or something like that in the original post.

Oh, sorry. That recipe format is incredibly hard to read. The extract is mixed up with the hop schedule, etc. It's a real pain to try to figure out.

In general, no more than a pound of crystal (MAX) is desired. I wouldn't use sugar, unless I had problems with attenuation in the past.

Definitely increase the hop additions to 1 ounce, if this is a 5 gallon batch. .2/.3/etc are nothing, and won't give you much at all.
