??/bit confused here..recipe? is the yeast for adding when you bottle? This beer has been made already? Im asuming this and that for a 5 gallon recipe you need 4.5 oz corn sugar about to reach 2.5 vol co2. I did about 3/4 cup for last tripple and its about as high as I would go...1 cup is pushing it and the bottles aree not made for the pressures much higher..If you have belgian bottles you can push higher levels but regular bottles you risk problems. I think 2.7 vol is max of style.
hope this helps
