I use a Mr Beer fermenter and don't use a secondary. This is only my second brew and the first time around I followed a very simplistic Mr Beer guide for sugar for this very weak Classic American Light HME.
My second time was with a Dry Irish Stout, everything went well and now it's time to bottle.
According to this calculator using .09 for gallons (12 ounces), 68F for temp, and 2 for desired co2. It's telling me to use 1.6g of Corn sugar in each 12 ounce bottle. This is around .38 teaspoons according to this calculator
. Is this accurate or not because it's assuming a priming solution in a bucket method? Should I use more or less?
On the Mr. Beer instructions it states using 3/4 of Cane sugar per 12 ounce bottle and I understand that it's for a style with a higher desired carbonation but it still seems quite a bit more. According to same calculator as above the 3/4 tsp per 12 ounce would aim for over a 3 for co2 volume.
Ran same numbers with beersmith and it states I should use the same. Am I wrong to assume I can use these calculators when not doing a priming solution with a bottling bucket?
