I filled it to 5.5 gal, and couldn't figure out why the gravity was only 1.046. Then, this morning, I remembered I didn't add the corn sugar like I planned.

Can I still add the corn sugar? If so, how? (Boil up two cups water per cup of sugar?) Also, anyone have a recommendation as to how much I should add?

Is there a math equation/program to find out how much the sugar will raise the beginning gravity after I add it?
