Well... its bottling time and from this particular recipe, I am told to use 3.5 oz priming sugar. In the past, my 5 gal batches called for 3/4 cup sugar... which would convert to 6 fl oz.
Does this seem reasonable to use only a little less than half a cup or do you suppose they mean 3.5 oz in weight as opposed to volume?? And if so, what volume of sugar would that be?
(the more i think about it as i type it down... it is beginning to sound like a ridiculous question.... as there couldnt be that big of a difference between the weight of sugar and weight of water )
