Hi All
Just about to bottle 5 gallons of Port O Palmer.
According to his nomograph I calculate 2.5 oz's of corn sugar. Calculated with 65 temp for beer and 2 for volumes of CO2.
This seems low to me ?
Any help would be appreciated

A little low I guess. TastyBrew says 2.9oz for a porter at 2 volumes. But there is a range for each style. Porter's shouldn't be overly carbonated anyway.
