I made a Caribou Slobber from the starter kit about a month or so ago. Today was the one-week date from bottling.
Thought I'd check out one of my beers, popped it open and it geysered. I lost half the bottle. Is there something I can do to keep this from happening in my remaining bottles? Would putting the rest in the fridge help? Should I just wait another week?
I carbonated it the way the instructions say, with one fizz drop per bottle. And they're the bottles that come with the kit (12 oz)
I know the instructions say two weeks and for some reason I had it in my head today was the two week date, but I didn't realize that until after I opened it. In my defense the last few weeks were busy with work so October's a bit of a blur. Anyways I just don't want this to happen again next week when I open another.
