I'm reading Clone recipes by Scott Russel and towards the end of the recipe he instructs to "Prime with....". Can anyone tell me what this means"? Does priming occur when bottling?

Also, I've been looking for a Mac n Jack African Ale recipe, but haven't had any luck. Anyone out there have this recipe? and if so, can you send it to me? thanks in advance!!

Basically, you're adding the priming solution into the beer while it's in the bottling bucket about to be bottled. There are plenty of methods used to make sure that priming solution gets mixed with the beer, just use the search feature.

Priming is adding fermentable sugar at bottling to carbonate the beer.
