In a bind, I need to bottle a stout I made a month ago. trouble is, it is in the bottling bucket.I am going to have to prime each bottle, I figure 1 &1/2 teaspoons per bottle( 1 liter bottles). I have an old bag of table sugar and a sealed bag of powdered (confectioners sugar). Which one should I use to prime my bottles? I am thinking the powdered sugar should be more sanitary, with it being a sealed bag. I just have never heard of anyone using it before. Thank you.......

I feel like I'm missing part of the story. How come you can't add your priming sugar to your bucket? Powdered sugar has other stuff added to it, so I wouldn't use it. How sanitary the sugar is isn't a huge concern, because you should mix it with water and boil it to sanitize it anyway.

I have a Coopers fermenter, Mostly I secondary in a carboy and then transfer back to fermenter with spigot(coopers fermenter) and mix with priming sugar mixed with water. But I just wanted to add sugar to bottles individually.
