Does anyone know what the OG is supposed to be on this recipe? The instructions did not say.

Also, I have no idea how much corn suger to add for carbination. Is there some fancy equation/calculation for detertiming that or is it just a per gallon standard amount?

Is there only one 'Dead Guy' clone recipe? I would think there were at least six or eight if not a dozen.

If it was a kit you'll have to list all the ingredients and someone can give you an idea of the OG you should expect.

As for priming, the answer is yes to both of your questions. You can use a standard ratio of 1 oz dextrose per gallon of beer (works well for the majority of styles IMO), or you can use a carbonation table if you prefer to customize your carbonation amount by style.

The Og on Yooper's DG clone is 1.066. Is this the one you mean?

Og is really determined by the recipe- if you post the recipe you're using, we can give you a better estimate of it. There are many recipes, and they do differ.

I have a little kitchen scale and weigh out my hops and corn sugar. If you don't have a scale, 2/3 cup for 5 gallons is an ok guestimate. I like my ales in the area of about 2.4 volumes.
