I'm kegging a brew and will have about 4 liters left over after the keg is full. My plan is to fill 2 2 liter bottles and I'm wondering how much sugar to put in. I've never bottled before let alone tried to improvise with a pop bottle. I'm also assuming that I use dextrose right? Thanks in advance for the help!
