Default Priming sugar got me to thinking

Is there any chance the boil time on the priming sugar could affect the carb level in the bottle? Seems like the last couple of batches have been car'b differently even with the same amount of sugar.

I don't know, just thinking

Not really. Unless you're boiling it down to caramel or something, sugar is sugar.

IIRC temperature will have some effect on the level of carbonation that results from bottle conditioning after priming.

--Also different beers will carbonate differently depending on their FG, obviously.

You might also have different amounts of CO2 already dissolved in the beer after fermentation, or small amounts of residual sugar that the yeast "left behind" during your main ferment, especially if you cold-crashed or something that would've encouraged the yeast to flocculate while they were still working on that last little bit of sugar.
