Hello everyone & Merry Christmas to everyone!
I bottled my first batch from my Mr. Beer kit on Monday (received it for Hanukkah this year). I bottled into 3 of the 1-Liter PET Bottles and the rest into 12oz glass bottles as people recommended the 1L bottles to test for carbonation progress as the plastic bottles will get stiff as the carbonation is happening.
So I used the recommended amount of table sugar as per Mr. Beer instructions. I checked on them before going to bed last night and my 1L plastic bottles are already stiff as if they are fully carbonated already. My concern is that I have used too much sugar and that my glass bottles may become too carbonated and I may have a bad thing happen to them.
Is this something I should worry about or are my plastic bottles just stiff because of the beer & the sugar and the amount of liquid in them?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated - thank you!
