Brewing and fermenting beer is only part of the equation. Carbonating your beer can make or break how good the beer tastes. Low carbonation levels can bring out the maltyness of your beer, while higher carbonation levels can bring out aromatics.
To figure out how much sugar to use, you can download our priming sugar calculator. We put this together to figure out how much sugar to use depending on how much carbonation we want. We also included some of the most popular sugars used to prime. These include: Corn Sugar, Cane Sugar, Brown Sugar, Molasses/Treacle, Candi Sugar, Lyle’s Golden Syrup, Maple Syrup, Honey, and Dry Malt Extract.
We also included a custom malt extract option in case you are using liquid malt extract or extract with different levels of fermentability.
In our better home brew formula training we include a list of beers with their recommended volumes of CO2.
Hope this helps you out. Don’t forget to share and let us know what you think.
