I've got some cider just about ready to bottle - I've given up waiting for it to clear (the gelatin helped some, but it's still not clear).

What's the range of priming sugar for "petulant" to "sparkling"? (even better, how many volumes of CO2?)

I usually do 1oz of sugar per gallon of cider for priming.

You do know that you're supposed to toss the gelatin into COLD liquid right? Just like you were making Jello...you put it in the fridge to gel...
