Ok so I just finished bottling, I put about 1 and 3/4 cup of water and a little over 4 oz of priming sugar in a pot, heated until boiling, then poured it into bottling bucket, then transferred beer into bucket. then bottled. Is that right? Felt weird to have the sugar water which looked just like water go into the bucket, but I think thats what my LHBS told me to do! Just checking.
Also, is a little over 4 oz of priming sugar (corn sugar) enough? I had about 4 and 1/4 or so gallons of beer what with the trub and all...last time i brewed it was overcarbonated so I didnt want to make that mistake again
