Default How long can Beer sit with priming sugar?

How long can a beer sit in the bottler once you've added priming sugar. Meaning - I have a beer in the bucket with sugar all set to bottle,. but the bottles arent' ready and I need to pick some up tomorrow. Am I losing valuable carb. at this point? How long can you safely leave it before the priming sugar ferments itself out the airlock?

Good question. I would say that at refrigerator temps, you'd have some time, but at room temperature I'd guess that you'd have less than a day before you would have to let the beer ferment out and then reprime and bottle a few days later.

That's just a guess, though. I would think that 5 ounces of corn sugar would ferment out very quickly. But I have no proof at all. I'd have to say that if it were me, I'd wait and bottle next week and reprime the batch.
