Welcome to a great hobby!

You will have to prime with some kind of fermentable sugar to carbonate. A simple sugar like table sugar or corn sugar is most commonly used. Check out the Kegging/Bottling forum for lots of information.

FG has been hit. Tastes a tad yeasty still. Hoping a 2-day 34F cold crash will knock out the yeast and clear it up. Now keg or bottle, that is the question...

I am planning on bottling Ed's original recipe. I see that everyone is kegging, so here is my (probably silly) newbie question: should I do anything to carbonate, such as adding priming sugars?
Yes boil a cup of water with 5 oz priming sugar. Add that to your bottling bucket and rack your beer on top of it.

I find that 3oz of priming sugar for a 5 gallon batch gives perfect carbonation. Im sure 5oz would lead to over carbonation.

5oz is the standard that comes with all the kits. The ratio id 1oz per gallon.

It's too much in my experience. Have you had consistent good results with that amount?

I wonder why you can get away with so much more dextrose. I imagine your beer is very fizzy.

Never had a fizzy beer and I use the full 5oz every time. 5 oz is the standard that comes with brew kits you can use more or less depending on vol of co2 desired.

What difference would using two row make instead of pale ale malt, as the original recipe calls for?
