right I have been putting my brews in to barrels  with 50g of sugar up to now.
but now I would like to put some into bottles.

Consider "batch priming" as it will give you a more consistent, predictable result.

Just enough to get it dissolved and not burn
Calculators depending on vol and style in beersmith it's anywhere between 80 and 120g for a typical 5gal batch, be very careful on the high end and get you numbers right
