Default Prime mini keg without boiling the corn sugar?

Do I need to boil the corn sugar, or can I just add the right amount to the keg and then rack on top of it. I boiled it last time but I'm thinking about putting it straight in the keg.

In the amount of time it took you to type out the question and wait for a response, you could have just gone ahead and boiled it

But anyway... My opinion is that you should always boil it. You can get away without doing so and will probably have no issues, but considering how easy it is (and fast, for such a small volume of liquid) I see little reason to skip it. Your call I guess.
