how much sugar to use to increase alcohol? like how many cups?
Sugar generally isn't advised to be used for ABV increases, but it can be. You are just adding fermentable sugars, but table sugar dries out the brew. It can be desirable in certain beer types, but generally isn't. As far as an amount, I'm not sure. You may be able to search on the forum for what others have used, or use a program like QBrew. I use extra malt to boost ABV as this increases the flavor and body as well as ABV.
Hopefully this helps more than hinders. If not, ask for clarification.
