Hey there! So 2 weeks ago I brewed my first batch of beer using dry extracts. I plan on bottling (possibly tomorrow!) depending on what my final gravity reading is. However, from what I've read, it appears most people will add a "priming sugar" right before getting ready to bottle. The concern out there regarding final gravity is, if the residual sugar and the priming sugar combined is too great, then there could be bottle bombs. On the other hand, not having enough sugar can result in lack of carbonation in your finished product. My question is (for my next batch), if I calculate how much residual sugar there would be say, 3 or 4 days prior to my final gravity reading, can those sugars be used to generate carbonation, thus eliminating the need to add a priming sugar altogether? On an extension to that, does anyone do that now?
