Hi all, our 1st brew will have been sitting in the fermenter for 3 weeks this coming weekend. I will take reading and hopefully will have reached FG so we can start bottling. Here is my question:
How full do you fill the bottles? I've heard fill to the top to lessen the chances of beer bombs, others say to leave about an inch from the top. Is there a general rule of thumb?
Also, if we do start to get exploding bottles, what can we do, open the bottles and recap?...... Thanks
