Default OOPS - priming sugar error

This probably isn't a huge deal but i figured i'd get an opinion.

I just bottled up a 1 gal IPA batch. I used honey as a priming sugar and calculated it out to be 0.69oz for the batch.

The issue is, i shouldve boiled like 1/2 cup of water with the honey for this small batch, but i wasnt thinking and used 1 1/2 cups of water.

essentially, all i did was water down my beer ever so slightly, correct? Can I expect any other adverse side effects?


The hydrometer sample tasted great

It will be fine... probably even better to thin the honey a bit anyway...

You diluted by 1/16. Probably just noticeable if at all.

and to be fair, it was a little under a gallon, and my have even benefited from a little water.

like i said, the sample tasted all good

As long as you got the correct priming sugar amount with your exact finished volume then you are ok. I personally wouldn't be comfortable only using 1/2 c of water only. I usually use at least a cup of water. Especially if your boiling it and it can evaporate fairly quickly. I just bring to boil then stick a lid on it and let it sit till I rack.
