Default Quick Question: priming sugar

I need to bottle some cider but don't have any priming sugar. Can I use regular table sugar? Would it be at the same amount of ounces?

You can use more cider to prime if the gravity is finished. Add cider until you raise the gravity by .003 SG

You could use table sugar, honey, etc. Try this calculator, which also has table sugar as an option. The Home Brew Recipe Calculating Program - Bottle Priming Calculator
