Fizz Drops
 
How do you feel about using the priming Fizz Drops for bottling beer?

If by Fizz Drops you also mean Carbonation Drops then I think their great, have always done the trick for me. I only use them for bigger bottles though as my usual bottle size is 500ml and that requires one and a half drops for obtimum carbonation, at least for my tastes anyway, and it can be a bit of a pain having to cut them in half.

over Carbonation
 
Does it over carbonate beer?

Never used them. It seems so much easier to make a sugar solution and add it to the bottling bucket rather than to each bottle.

As long as you use the correct amount no it does not over carbonate beer. General rule of thumb is 1 for 300-350ml bottles and 2 for 700-750ml bottles. You can then adjust according to the beer style you are brewing.
