  • Corn Sugar, or dextrose, is used to "prime" your beer to produce natural carbonation in the bottle.
  • "Priming" is the act of adding a small amount of fresh fermentable sugar to the beer just before bottling so that the residual yeast will consume it and produce carbonation in the sealed bottle.
  • We recommend corn sugar for this purpose because it is easy for the yeast to consume and has a neutral flavor profile, meaning it will leave your beer tasting the way you designed it!

Use 4 or 5 oz of corn sugar to prime 5 gallons prior to bottling. Dissolve in 1-1.5 pints of water and boil for 5 minutes to sanitize prior to mixing with your beer.
 
If your fermentation ended at 68F it will retain about 1 volume of CO2. If it ended at 50F it will retain about 1.2 volumes of CO2. 4 oz in 5 gallons adds 1.48 Volumes of CO2. 5 oz adds 1.84 volumes of CO2 to 5 Gallons.
 
Suggested CO2 Levels:
  • Cask Ales 1.5 to 2.0
  • Ales 2.3 to 2.6
  • Lagers 2.4 to 2.6
  • Highly Carbonated Beers 3.0+
    • Champagne is 6.3 and requires a special bottle.
 
To convert from volumes to g/L:
  • multiply volumes x 1.96.
 
Can also be used to boost your Original Gravity without impacting the beer's flavor profile. Adds 1.042 points per pound per gallon (PPG) to your specific gravity.
  • Dextros Needed (lbs.) = (Actual Volume * (Target Gravity – Actual Gravity)) / 0.042
