Thaw it completely to room temperature. Don't boil.

How many gallons are you planning on backsweetening with 12 - 24 ounces of concentrate?

how much sugar is in the concentrate?? look at the nutrition info on the cans and multiply the grams per serving by the servings per container.

I just did half and half so it should be enough. Hopefully no bombs.

I use a can of concentrate per 5 gallon carboy to prime. Carbonation comes out light and crisp but next batch ill double this amount for more.

28 grams is equal to roughly an ounce. Usually there are 6 earnings in a frozen can of concentrate and 26-30 grams of sugar per serving so about 3/4 cup of priming sugar is equal to one frozen can of concentrate.
