    Right amount of priming sugar for fruit stout.

    Og was 1.050, FG was 1.010. Added 5lbs of raspberries for two weeks. Any ideas on how much priming sugar should be added for bottling? My last batch was too fizzy, looking for soft carbonation as it is a stout. Any help would be much appreciated, thankyou!

    is 2ndary femnetation necessary w/ dry hopping?
