Default Amount of sugar per bottle

I'm kegging a beer for the first time today and want to bottle about a six pack of twelve ouncers. I've never done individual bottles, just the whole batch... Anyone know how much sugar to add to each individual 12oz bottle? I have like 5 pounds of corn sugar and would rather use it up than buy the drops

Using one ounce per gallon it would work out to 2.6 grams per 12 ounce bottle.

Adding sugar to each bottle is a great way to get crazy fluctuations in carbonation. You should force carb the beer in the keg and fill bottles using the "We Dont need no stinking beer gun" method.

Thank you for the replies. One would think that adding a specific mass of sugar to each bottle would create a much more uniform carbonation. I'll have to look up that other method as well
