Ok well the general consensus is that 3/4 cup of dextrose is the standard for carbing a five gallon batch of....well...anything. I was trying to stay away from refined sugars in this batch so would it be ok to substitute apple juice for the dextrose.

Because there are around 200 grams of sugar in a cup, you would need 150 to carb a five gallon batch. Being that there are 30 grams per 8 ounces of the apple juice that I am using, you would theoretically need 40 oz. of the juice.

Does this all seem right or am i missing something big. I am a newb so go easy on me.
