My bet is nothing.

I did that on my first batch but halfway through bottling I realized it. Then SLOWLY poured each bottle back in after I added the sugar solution.

Ummm...probably nothing.

You might be able to open the bottles, put in a coopers sugar pellet, and recap.

I agree with the others. The other option is to wait. Depending on where it was in fermentation you might get a small amount of carbonation. It will take a looong time though. Chalk it up to experience we all make mistakes and the process is intimidating at first but it will become habit after awhile.

Was it done fermenting? If not, then yes. If yes, then no.
