Here is a great online carbonation calculator : http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/recipator/carbonation.html just type in the desired amount of Co2 and hey presto! Hope this help you as much as it does for me.
Rule of thumb to go by - 1oz sugar per 1gal Beer. That will get you a nice carbonation on most beers. I typically just add 5oz every batch and don't mess with any calculations unless I'm intentionally under-carbonating a stout or something.
Priming sugar amount depends on carbonation level, that is Total carbonation = CO2 already in beer + CO2 from priming sugar CO2 already in beer depends on the temperature you bottle at CO2 from priming sugar is proportional to amount of sugar used Total carbonation is expressed in volumes (Vol) and depends on beer style. You can find all this taken ...
There is no reason it should be different from any other sugar. I use 45 ppg and get the gravities I expect, so I would have to say that 46 is closer than 38. I suppose it could vary by brand if one brand somehow cut the sugar with something else, but I'm not aware of that actually happening. BTW, candi sugar rocks are a waste of money. Belgian brewers ...
