We're talking about ounces of sugar by weight, by the way. Not volume, which is a different measurement.
I don't know about Mr. Beer- if you add the priming sugar solution to the Mr. Beer fermenter, you'd have to mix it up with the sediment in there. I'm no expert on Mr. Beer (only saw one once) but I didn't think that it was used with a bottling bucket. Usually, the priming solution is added to a bottling bucket and then the beer racked (siphoned) from the fermenter to the bottling bucket. That's what we're talking about here. If you're not using a bottling bucket. I'd still do the individual sugar additions.
