I was looking on The Beer Recipator - Carbonation

The beer recipator, and I couldn't find blonde ale. I am wondering how much corn sugar I should use to carbonate a kit I got. They gave me 4oz and I would like to try and keep it to style.

So my question is how much would you need for a 5 gallon batch?

Thanks again

Patton

this is what beersmith has

The range is 3.51oz to 4.58oz to give 2.4-2.8vol carb.

Type: Ale
Category Number: 6B
Original Gravity: 1.038-1.054 SG
Color: 3.0-6.0 SRM
Final Gravity: 1.008-1.013 SG Bitterness: 15.0-28.0 IBU
Carbonation: 2.4-2.8 vols Alcohol by Volume: 3.80-5.50 %
Description: http://www.bjcp.org/2008styles/style06.html#1b
A clean, crisp, delicately balanced beer usually with very subtle fruit flavors and aromas. Subdued maltiness throughout leads to a pleasantly refreshing tang in the finish. To the untrained taster easily mistaken for a light lager, a somewhat subtle pilsner, or perhaps a blonde ale
Profile: Dry, light to medium body with light malty sweetness. Low to medium hop bitterness with minimal aroma. Slight fruit flavor. Light yellow to golden blonde color with no chill haze. Med to high carbonation.
Ingredients: Generally all malt, but can include up to 25% wheat malt and some sugar adjuncts. Any hop variety can be used. Clean American, lightly fruity English, or Kölsch yeast. May also be made with lager yeast, or cold-conditioned.
Examples: Pelican Kiwanda Cream Ale, Russian River Aud Blonde, Rogue Oregon Golden Ale, Widmer Blonde Ale, Fuller's Summer Ale, Hollywood Blonde, Redhook Blonde
