Default Bombers over carbed....12oz not????

Anyone have experience with their bombers (22 oz) bottles being over carbed and the 12 oz bottles being almost under carbed. All out of the same batch. All conditioned for 4+ weeks at 70 and all cold crashed 5+ days before consuming. Curious about why this is. Thanks in advance.

The only thing I can think of is headspace- if there was too much headspace in the bombers, that would have them be overcarbed.

Good tip. Never thought of that. So less head space is better than too much head space??

Well, not "less" exactly- but the proper amount, about 1" to 1.5" from the top of the bottle but above the "neck".

I'm going to start using the amount stated on beersmith for the given recipe. That should level things out.

I've had problems with my wheat beer recipe. It seems kind of consistent. I made a video of myself filling up 7 pint glasses with foam.

I deleted the account from Youtube and lost it though.

I'm going to ask what would seem to be a simple question. Which bottles did you fill first, and how do you ensure your priming sugar is evenly distributed?

When I switched up my bottling procedure I had to make extra sure that I properly mix my priming sugar because of using a 10gal corny. I don't prescribe to the bottle size having an effect. I will sometimes fill many different bottle sizes in the same bottling run depending on the beer. Some of my belgians will get a 3L bottle for a trappist style party I want to have. I've done a 6000ml, 3000ml, 1500ml, 750ml, and 330ml bottles all in the same run all pouring apparently the same carb. Headspace may have an effect but when we're talking volume in a bottle neck we're talking very small amounts. So I can't see the head space making a drastically different carb level in a 22oz vs a 12oz. Also if you're using a bottling wand then your head space is ROUGHLY the same. Sure you have a slightly larger amount of volume displacement because its a taller bottle. However the volume is rather small.
