    Hello,
    I'm getting ready to bottle a 3 gallon batch of cream ale. I used the calculator on the windows app and 2.6 volumes it said to add 2.8 of priming sugar.
    I also ran it in the online calc and that one said 3.0 ounces.
    On the windows app it is version 1.41

    The only reason I compared is because 2.8 ounces seemed low.

    Thanks,
    John

    I only brew and bottle 10 liter batches 2.6 - 2.8 gallons... 60 grams of table sugar (2.1) ounces dissolved in 1/4 cup distilled water (boil 2-3 minutes) then cooled creates a very nice carbonation for all of my Belgian beers every time.

    That seems right. I do 5 gallon batches, and use 5 ounces for higher carb, and 4 ounces for "regular" carb. So 2.8-3 ounces for 3 gallons is on the higher carb level and should be perfect without gushers.
