So I got really frustrated because one of my batches "finished" at 1.022. I bottled anyway, out of frustration and figuring "oh, I used a lot of crystal 120L, and it was dark extract.... It's been in primary for almost 1.5 months... I remember reading that this yeast blah blah..."
So about a week and a half after bottling I noticed that one of the bottlecaps from this batch wasn't what I was used to; no little divet on top. It was the only one outside of the cases I kept the batches in, so I had to open it first... OCD I guess.
I assumed I had a bunch of bottle bombs. I open the bottle, and WOOSH out comes all the beer. "OH crap, now I've gotta have everyone over to drink all this stuff before my closet drowns in foam and glass shards."
In an effort to get some of them consumed quickly, I grabbed one of the 12pack boxes and took it to a friends'.
They're all a little undercarb'd. I figure they need another week till the green fades.
Has this happened to anyone else? Anyone get "The Gusher Scare?"
