Another beginner error!

I did not boil my priming sugar in water, I simply dumped the sugar in the bottling bucket, stirred, and bottled. I'm guessing I'm going to have uneven carbonation?

Any tips on what I could do to remedy my error? Or should just accept my losses and live with my flat beer?

Thanks for the help and advice.

It should be okay as long as most of the sugar dissolved into the beer before bottling.

Sounds good. I popped a test bottle today and it's already halfway carbonated so I think I'm in the clear.

Also, I want to come to your brewhouse, you've got a serious keg lineup going!
