Fortunately, i have another pale ale in thé primary and another one in thé secondary.
I think you could just add sugar... One concern I'd have is the whether the sugar would dissolve quickly enough. Also, the nice thing about the drops is that you can get the proper dose in each bottle. I don't know exactly how much sugar should go in each bottle, but the morebeer site above says that 60 drops equals 250 grams. So each drop should be about 4.2 grams. According to these guys
there are 4.2 grams of sugar in a teaspoon
(However, I would test this before trusting this link).
If you simply add table sugar just make sure you don't add too much!
