Hello all,

I'm getting ready to bottle and carb one gallon of hard lemonade, but have no idea how much priming sugar to use. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Have you got a scale that measures to the nearest, say, quarter of an ounce? For a hard lemonade I would probably go with a bit under 1oz table sugar.

I'd agree. While I haven't made anything other than beer, but, 1oz by weight per gallon is my rule of thumb for bottling... I assume it'd be similar for a hard cider/lemonade.

Keg #1: - Hefeweizen
Keg #2: - Mild Ale
Keg #3: - CO2

On Deck: Black IPA - Imperial Stout - IPA or Double IPA - Mocktoberfest

1 ounce by weight per gallon is the standard and what I use for hard lemonade.
