That yeast has Brett which takes a long while to finish, and depending on your original OG, it could go a bit lower than 1.012. Quick search showed people going to 1.008 Hard to tell for sure, but I'm guessing your priming sugar restarted it and it is dropping lower than you think, thus causing bottle bombs. Also the beer will probably change while in the bottle with the brett, so the taste could be a lot different by the time it is judged.

I think your bottles will most likely explode/be over carbonated. Brett can eat a lot of sugars yeast can't, so it wasn't really don't fermenting. Also, you didn't use champagne bottles so your bottles aren't necessarily ready for that level of carbonation.

I'd stick them in the fridge and drink it all young, and personally, I wouldn't submit it to a contest.

Also, be sure to sanitize the **** out if your fermenters. Brett(brettanomyces) is one helluva yeast, it's a survivor, it could cause you problems in the future

Yeah Brett is pretty awesome for bottle conditioning, try Orval. To me it's like one of those snake fireworks, the head just oozes out into this awesome clumpy frothy lacy head.


Bet the beers great, just be careful.
