I have 5 Gallons of cider that i will ferment all the way dry. how much cane sugar should i use at bottling, to get a lightly carbonated cider? Also about how long do i have to let it charge in the bottle before drinking? Thanks in advance

I usually use about 2/3 cup cane sugar boiled in 2 cups of water. I usually make semi-dry cider, so the yeast may be working a little faster, but my ciders are usually carbonated to the level I'm looking for within 1 to 2 weeks.
