How much sugar do I add to 5 gallons of beer?
Priming Sugar Formulas for Sweet Success – Sure, you could use that handy priming sugar calculator. Or you could take credit for every single step of the homebrewing process by doing the math yourself. Let’s take a look at the formulas for each of the three popular primers. The brewer’s rule of thumb for every five gallons of beer is:
- 3/4 cups (6 ounces, or 113 grams) of corn sugar (dextrose)
- ⅔ cup (5.3 ounces, or 150 grams) of table sugar
- 1 ¼ cups (181 grams) of light dry malt extract (DME)
- ½ to 1 cup of honey, which can vary in composition (see below)
These measurements account for the differences in volume and fermentability for each substance, and serve as a reminder that it’s usually best to weigh your ingredients to achieve the best results. But you can fine-tune that with the formulas to make sure you hit your target carbonation and brew the best beer possible.

Update 9/2012 Added several new bottle sizes, two extra custom options and metric support! Thank you for the recommendations from fellow brewers in the forum ! Note: When bottling a five gallon carboy worth of beer, there will always be less than 640 ounces of beer available to bottle because of losses in the hose, and whatever is left at the bottom.
Sanitizing an extra bottle or two is good insurance in case one drops or breaks. Always have a few extra caps on hand too. To give you an idea of what the bottles look like: From Left to Right: 64 oz growler jug, 22 oz craft beer bottle, 1/2 Liter (16.9 oz) bottle, 12 ounce bottle. If you are getting sick of all this bottling, advanced home brewers will package to a 5 gallon corny keg, which requires a CO2 system and fridge or keezer. The beer fermenting there next to the corny keg and CO2 tank is a German lager.
