comment Recipe says don't add priming sugar, will it lead to flat beer?
@TobiasPatton , mdma yes, I misread instruction (see edit), but it still doesn't mention strength. Will it be the same in both cases? I think yes, because they suggest to add 1 kilo of sugar to 20L.

You are correct about sugar, that is exactly what instruction says. But this rises my initial question, if I brew 12L and don't add sugar, will my beer be flat then?

I think strength was not mentioned in instruction, and that also confused me. The kit was 1L can with extract, I didn't add anything beside water. Yes, I think I will add water up to 20L, I really don't want strong beer and this clears a question about priming sugar and carbonization. Luckily my friend has a crate of empty bottles.

comment Recipe says don't add priming sugar, will it lead to flat beer?
Instruction says when to bottle, I just don't have it with me. I think it was 1.010. So how do I know if I should add sugar in this case or not? Instruction explicitly states that I should not (in case of 12L variation). I want to make regular beer (4-5% alcohol), does it mean that I definitely should add water up to 20L? Is it possible to just add water in the middle of fermentation? Or at what point it is possible?
