As it turns out, I didn't make bombs. That's about as good as the news gets. Most of the bottles we've opened have been over carbonated. One poured fine last night but left my roommate with stomach pain, and my girlfriend opened one today that was actually UNcarbed and had a sour taste (she didn't know to inspect before sipping). Long story short, it's going down the drain tomorrow.

It's only been two weeks. I wouldn't dump it unless it was OBVIOUSLY rancid. Your roommate's stomach pain could have been from anything and one uncarbed sour beer hardly warrants a complete dump. Just put it all somewhere out of the way and forget about it. Try one in a month or so.... There is nothing in that beer that is going to kill you.

I once brewed a beer which after it dropped developed a white mould inside the carboy which was only filled to the shoulders. It was difficult to get into the neck of the carboy but I took a sponge on a stick dipped in steriliser and cleaned as much of it up as I could. Mould kept coming back, didn't want to pour it out or disturb it intentionally mixing it into the beer. Cleaned it a few more times. Beer was fine in the end?

Alright thanks guys I guess ill give it a few more weeks and see what happens. I'm just nervous/anxious to fix it as this is my first ever experience with any problems post-fermentation so I just don't know what to expect.
