Nope-the 8 oz. in the recipe was included in the boil. I normally use about 5 oz. priming sugar to 1 cup of water for carbing. The overcarbed bottle was one of about 3 that were over-carbed (out of a batch of nearly 2 cases). I found out, after the fact, that those 3 were the first to be bottled, so considering I didn't stir the priming solution when blending, it was most likely just heavier sugar concentration at the base of the bottling bucket, and not an issue of using too much sugar like I mentioned above.

I think I am going to try this for my first non-kit recipe...So what is the reason for adding 8 oz corn sugar during the boil? Just to up the OG? Are the '1% alcohol boost' bags I can get from A(ustin)HB just corn sugar on steroids?
