I had a small boil over when making a batch and once I chilled the wort and put it in the bucket I had a lapse and forgot about the boil over and raised the total volume to 5 gallons. Will this affect the normal amount of sugar used to prime bottles?

Well,about the only problem I can see is if you primed for a lesser amount than the 5G in the kit recipe. What amounts are we talking here? .5G or less?
