« on: May 22, 2012, 03:03:45 AM »
Hi guys!
Id made a 4,6 gallon batch, i have to bottle tomorrow, and i dont have time of buying a diferent sugar than sugar cane one.
Can any body tell me how much sugar should i add for making a medium carbonated beer?

Cane sugar is fine.  Assuming the beer is at around 68F 4 oz of sugar will give you around 2.5 volumes of CO2.
