I've added table sugar straight to the bottles before. It's not ideal but it worked fine for me.

Bumping a four month old thread, I know. I just bought a cheap enamel pot for fermenting, possibly brewing too. Thanks to those who posted. I guess it worked ok for the OP, and others. And I use Dominoe Dots for that 1/2 teaspoon bottle prime.

Yup, I'm still doing it this way (slow chill and ferment in the kettle) and probably won't stop any time soon. Absolutely love it.

The domino dots are a really good idea!

Home brewers have been bottle priming with table sugar as far back as prohibition. Last time I had about a gallon that would not fit in my keg, I used I believe two of the paper sugar packets per liter flip top...beer carbed nicely...I ran the numbers based on grams in one packet and vols co2 desired, worked perfect!!!

Back to the OP, yes I am a believer in kettle fermenting, surprised more folks don't try it! It is incredibly easy and effective!!!! Ask a lazy man!
