This is my first time brewing and my son didn't do anything to help matters. I was mixing my wort and was putting in the sugar. My recipe called for 1kg which is roughly 2.2 pounds, well lets just say he scared me and I added a little over 3 pounds. I have a very violent fermentation. Is the batch ruined and should I start all over again. I plan on using 22oz. bottles and was wondering home much priming sugar should I use. I'm thinking around a 1tsp. for each bottle.
The extra sugar will make the beer a bit stronger, but not a lot. I generally add priming sugar to the entire batch, rather than per bottle. It's less work. I boil the sugar in about a cup of water, then add it to the beer to be bottled after racking the beer to another container. I use an average of 1 oz. of sugar for each gal. of beer.
A lot of sugar will give you cider-y flavors and make the beer taste alcohol-hot, but an extra pound in a 5-gallon batch won't ruin your beer by a long shot. At the very worst you've made yourself a learning experience! I've found some of my mistakes made the best beer.
As for priming sugar, I agree with the others: boil some water with your priming sugar, let it cool a bit. Put that in the bottom of your bottling bucket, then rack (siphon) your beer from your fermenter (bucket/carboy) on top of the sugar. Stir gently with a sanitized spoon and bottle.
