I'm not sure if I did this right. I boiled a pint of water with 3/4 cup of corn sugar and added to the bottom of a bottle bucket. I then racked the beer on top of this. The beer swirled its way up the bucket while it siphoned. I then bottled. I did not stir the beer to avoid any aeration. My question is...should I have stirred the beer to insure the sugar and beer were properly mixed, or do you think I did the right thing?

This is the typical method - you're fine!

Relax and have a Bitch Creek?

+1. It also does not hurt to gently stir it as well.

I typically give it a quick stir, but I forgot to stir my first batch and it came out fine.

You're fine....

I've taken to pouring half of the solution in the bottom and the remaining amount half way up. I had some uneven carbing before and someone here recomended it.

You did it the same way I do every batch. I think you will be fine. Just have another beer and it will work itself out.

Ditto here, exactly like you did - I always put the priming sugar solution into the bottling bucket first, then siphon in the beer without stirring, and I've always had nice uniform carbonation.
