I am bottling a California Common tonight, and am trying to figure out how much priming sugar I need.

I am using this form:

The Beer Recipator - Carbonation


However, I have no idea how to figure out the desired volumes of CO2. Can anyone give me an idea of how to figure this out?

(It is a 5 gallon batch).

Here are some rough guidelines based on style. You can also check for the specific style in the BJCP style guide, but that will only be a rough description - no numbers. Should be a good start though.
