Brewed a Russian Imperial Stout using a NB extract kit. Tastes great but has the carbonation of a Belgian Golden. Was in secondary at least 3 mos. Intentionally went with less than the 5/8 ths cup of sugar but my bottles are more effervescent than those guys in the "More Beans?" scene in Blazing Saddles.
Help. Would longer in secondary have helped or should I REALLY cut the sugar for bottle conditioning. Thanks.
Very cool. Thanks. Took one out of the reefer that I had ther for a while just now and it was better - good to know that's not random chance. Thinking about storing the balance of the bottles in the fridge... If cooling can "cure" it probably makes sense to wait...
Put it in the back of the closet and forget about it for a while. I have read that sometimes under carbonated beers give the impression they are over carbonated because the CO hasn't dissolved into the beer yet.
Beer is proof god loves us and wants us to be happy-Franklin
