In about three weeks I will be bottling my first batch of homebrew in about ten years, and I have been getting information overload on carbinating in the bottles. I used to use 6 primetab pills per my 16 oz Grolsch bottles, but I see that product is no longer even made. I see things like Cooper's Carbination drops (1 per 12 oz, can 1 be used for 16?), Conditioning tabs, Corn Sugar, etc it is starting to boggle my mind.
I am guessing if I want to use the tablets, I will need some combination of them and that seems silly.
So, it is better to use tablets, or the 5 oz packages of corn sugar and use a bottling bucket? I am assuming the 5 oz packages are the right size for a 5 gallon batch?
