Priming and Corn Sugar

Priming sugar, corn sugar, and dextrose are all terms for the sugar added to homebrew before bottling to add carbonation. For beginners who are just starting to use beer bottles for homebrewing it is important to consult your recipe for how much corn sugar you should add to your brew to prevent over carbonation. In general, 1 oz of corn sugar is added per US gallon of beer to be carbonated. Additionally, keep in mind that temperature can play a factor in carbonation mishaps. Use a brewing thermometer to measure the temperature and adjust accordingly.

Beer will not naturally carbonate if it is stored at a temperature that is outside the working temperature range of your yeast strain (do not store ales at 50 deg F. and expec them to carbonate. It will be too cold for the yeast to ferment the added priming sugar and create carbonation.
