Wee Heavy Priming Question

    I split this beer into two batches. 2.5 gallons each. Just checked the calculator and it says i need .2 oz of priming sugar. That doesn't seem like enough priming sugar. I'll also add that this beer is 11% abv. My experience with high abv beers is that they take longer to carb. So should I use more priming sugar?

    You want it carbed pretty low ... but. 2 seems really low .... so maybe. 4....?
    Yes... the big ones take longer .... but you will want to age it anyway

    I hope I didn;t over carb it. I went with .8. I was scared I would screw it up like I have a few other high abv beers that never carbed right for me.

    .2 is nothing. I mean is that even considered carbing? But what do I know...
