Morning all

I’ve got a right mixture of bottles some I’m not even sure of their size

Anyway, bulk prime , how much sugar per litre

It’s Wilko Classic lager kit I’m going doing

I always refer to the priming table in Greg Hughes' Home Brew Beer (the bible). For light lagers, 6.5g sugar per litre.

Batch/bulk prime, much better way of doing instead of having to prime each bottle thumb.

I don't like highly carbonated beer, so I prime mine at 2 or 3 g per litre. I experimented some years ago, tried priming half a dozen bottles at different rates, even to silly high rates and left the bottles in a hot greenhouse under a sack!
Interesting results to say the least :laugh8:

Wilko instructions say 85g for 23 litres, so that's 3.7g per litre.
