Apologies if this has been asked before.

In Beersmith I can select the type of priming sugar, and the desired volumes. This doesn't affect my ABV.

Should I be adding the amount of sugar i use for priming into the recipe ingredients (with the hops, yeast, grain etc)?

Towards the bottom, under the Style tab look for the carbonation drop down box. It'll be in there. i can't remember if it shows up in the recipe ingredients though, im not home or else i'd check.

The priming sugar addition will not have an effect on the ABV of the beer. It's usually less than .02%
