) [ prime with more dry malt than corn sugar; 3/4 made flat beer ]
I've been bottling with 1/2 to 3/4 cup of DME (boiled in about a pint
of water) for bottling, and it provides plenty of carbonation. This
is for the standard 5-gallon batch in the standard 12-oz bottles and
pint bottles.

The storage temperature of the bottles makes a big difference,
though. Leave ale in a cold (~60F) closet for a month, drag out a
bottle, and you may have flat beer. Stash the rest of the bottles in
a warm place for a week or so, and your beer carbonates and is nice.
