Cheers & beers, fellow brewers. I have a question about something for y’all.
So, tonight, I go to bottle a weizenbock, which I originally kegged and carbonated at 10 PSI at 38F. But, I decided that at 9% abv it would take forever to drink, so I wanted to bottle it. I took it off gas, degassed it a few times until no hissing was happening anymore after a few days. So I figured it was degassed. Mistake number one.
So I go to bottle it tonight, dump the priming sugar into the keg, dump new yeast in since it had been sitting in the kegerator for a couple months. Mistake number two. Only to discover it’s still carbonated. So…what do I do, I filled a couple bottles…decided just to cap them.
So, this is a 4 gallon batch, I dumped a priming solution in with 4.65oz of corn sugar and a packet of Mangrove jack’s workhorse yeast. If I had bottled, would I get crazy bottle bombs and the like if the beer still had a bit of carbonation?
Also, I’ve decided to leave it at room temp and carb up in the keg and degass it to bring it back down. I guess I can just drink it from the keg slowly or bottle it once it’s carbonated off the keg.
I know that’s probably way too much corn sugar to be carbonating in the keg, so it’s going to get crazy over carbonated in there too…
What say you?
