Default what are the negative effects of adding priming sugar warm

by warm i mean 90 degrees are so. after you boil your priming sugar and are about to add it to your beer can such a small amount of warm liquid negatively effect your beer? are their other underlying issues? i always wait for the liquid to reach the temp of my beer before adding but was wondering if adding earlier and warmer could degrade my brew.

Nah, don't worry about it. When I bottle the priming solution always goes into the bucket warm. The worst that will happen is it may kill a tiny fraction of your yeast... not enough to affect anything. But at 90*F it's not likely to kill anything. You'll be fine!

+1 to adding it warm.

Even if it is near boiling, unless your using a gallon of water, it will barely affect the beer temp.

I have had no ill effects mixing 190F priming solution with the beer.

Mine comes off the stove boiling, and goes into the bottling bucket just after it starts racking. Five oz. of sugar in 2 cups of water, even if boiling, can't affect the ultimate temperature of 5 gal of beer significantly.

Yep, me too. Anywhere I can cut out time and a sanitation risk at the same time, I'll take it.
