ive never done this before i usually just keg or bottle the whole batch but ive come across some free flip top 22's...whats the correct amount of priming sugar to add to a single bottle?

i want to be able to bottle a few of these 22oz ers and then keg the rest like usual..

why not just keg it all then bottle off the keg? probably easier than trying to measure out that small of an amount of priming sugar.
or try the coopers/muntons carb drops, though people have had inconsistent success with these and i've never used thme.

Carb tabs have worked well for me.

We use carb tabs without any problem

We always keep some on hand just incase you forget the sugar when bottling you can go back and hit each bottle with them. Or when making something special we just use the carb tabs its more accurate than trying to measure out and mix sugar.
I was married for 10 years before my wife knew I drank.
Then one day I made a mistake and came home from work sober
