Just getting ready to bottle a Triple from an DME Brewkit. I really like Tripels that are highly carbonated. Some of the American Triples that I have tried didnot have that high head and carbonation. Can I do something prior to bottling to achieve a good high carbonation. Is it as simple as adding a little extra corn sugar (what I have been priming with) or is there something else that would be a better primer? Or should I just go with the standard amount that I have been using (.75 Cup)? I don't want to wind up with bottle bombs! Thanks.
If you want higher carbonation, go with 1 cup of corn sugar instead of 3/4. I accidentally double carbonated a brew one time and had no explosions. I wouldn't use more than one cup, though.
