Hi everyone,

I am in Spain so use the metric system but feel free to answer in any system you use as I will make the conversion!
I am going to bottle my wart today (is it still called wart??) after the second fermentation and more than 2 weeks and want to add the Glucose (Dextrose) for bottling but am not sure what the amounts should be in grams/liter.

I am sure this question has been asked many times before but I cannot find it!!

Thanks!

First off, once the wort is fermented it becomes beer

The general rule of thumb for priming is .75-1oz of corn sugar per finished gallon of beer. 21.3-28.3 grams.

The best way to do this is by weight, not by volume so get a small kitchen scale to be accurate.
