Default Overcarbed

I seem to keep having issues with stouts and porters, especially of being over carbed, or the co2 not absorbing enough. I start testing at two weeks, had a few explode, and then refrigerated some for two weeks for a total of five weeks, and still, open it and it all comes foaming out.

Am I not being patient enough? And is this indicative of darker beers?


(Of what I can salvage the tastes is fine)

Sounds like the beers were not completely fermented. Either that or infection. How long do you usually wait before bottling?

At least a month, This one was three weeks primary then transferred to secondary for one week. Gravity had held steady. It is weird that it always happens to stouts and porters. I fixed the issue with other beers. Patients was the answer. If one had not exploded I wouldn't even think about it too much and just let it condition out.
