It seems like 2.5 oz of priming sugar is a little low too. not sure what style and how much carbonation you were after though. I often use around 4 oz of table sugar and I don't think the difference between corn and cane is that great.

I typically use 3-4oz cane sugar. Just about the sweet-spot IMO.

That's for a five gallon batch though, right?  He stated that this is a 2.5 gallon batch.  I think 2.5 oz is plenty.

Edit: ndcube beat me to it.

Yes! However I've been reviewing my notes for my last three 2.5 gallon batches and I indeed used 4oz of cane sugar @65F for each! Thought the carbonation was a little bit more than expected- but not terribly so. Remind me next time not to bottle and drink beer at the same time. Yeah like that'll happen... ;D
