Default Exploding bottles?

has anyone had this happen to them? I plan on conditioning a four gallon batch with half a cup of dextrose this weekend and don't want beer all over the walls!

This should be fine.

If you follow the guideline of 0.75 cup for a 5 gallon batch, the same level of carbonation can be met in a 4 gallon batch by using 0.6 cup.

Some algebra:


0.75 X 4 * 0.75
------ = ------ => ---------- = X => 0.6 = X
5 4 5

argh! The spacing got all messed up there in that attempt to show math.

Second attempt:

Code:

 0.75      X             4 * 0.75
------ = ------    =>   ---------- = X    =>    0.6 = X
   5       4                5

yes... that's what it is all about. I was about to question your skills as a computer programmer.
