    I use a level teaspoon of castor sugar for 750ml bottles and a

    this can impart a 'cidery' taste to the beer but that's never been my experience.
    Pellets may be a bit more accurate quantity-wise but are not very
    economical in the short or long run.

    All i can say is this: http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/recipator/carbonation.html?13044439#tag
    This is a calculator. Assuming that you want to bottle 12-12oz
    bottles and taking for granted that you may leave like a 1oz gap to
    the top, that will be something like 12*11oz= 132oz or 1.03125 US
    Gallons. Drop in those numbers into the calculator and you get 0.68
    oz corn sugar for the whole bottling volume. That would achieve 2
    volumes at 75F, my typical bottling temp.
    That little calculator has so far predicted my carbonation and i
    intend to use it the day i decide to keg too.

    I only bottle, and would advise against adding sugar to the bottles, if you get too much they burst.
    The better way to do it would be to take a sauce pan and put about 1/8th cup of sugar and a cup of water to the boil, and after all sugar is dissolved ad the entire amount to the amount of beer you want to bottle and stir gently before bottling. Papazian covers this nicely in his book.

    Cheers

    The simple way for only a few bottles would seem to be with priming
    pellets, the little corn sugar tabs that they sell for priming the
    bottles. I keep some on hand.

    Emergency case if you have none would be left over corn sugar or honey
    3/4 to 1 and 1/4 cup for 5gal. You do the math. 1gal= 128oz 1/5cup
    sugar and so on 32oz.... 12oz

    I never had and problems adding a slightly rounded tea-spoon (5mL) of
    sugar (in my case, raw sugar) to my 750mL bottles. I used to use a
    kitchen funnel in order to make sure I didn't spill any sugar when
    pouring it into the bottle.

    750 mL = 25.360517 US fluid ounces

    Just ensure you ferment the Wort fully flat first.

    I also made a practice of tipping my bottles a few times in the first
    week to ensure the sugar was mixed evenly throughout the bottled brew.
    Since you're using corn sugar, it should dissolve fairly evenly, but I'd
    still tip my bottles 2-4 times in the first week.
