Default Did he ruin his beer?

A friend bottled his first brew. Then a week later (that's how long the instructions said to wait) he popped a top and it wasn't carbonated. So he unbottled the whole batch and reprimed/rebottled.
Did he ruin it or will it go ahead and carb?

Because of what I learned here I'm going to wait 3 weeks before I touch mine, it's going into the bottles this weekend.

He should have waited!

I'm not sure, but I'd venture to say he's now running the risk of bottle bombs if it didn't have any carbonation. Essentially he has twice the priming sugar.

And he has definitely opened the door for contamination.

They may have just been slow to carbonate, meaning they would have eventually. Now they may become bottle bombs.

Not to sound mean, but is your friend sure he primed in the first place?

so he primed it twice???

if he did, my guess is that yeah...he WAY overcarbed his beer and in a few weeks they'll start becoming bottle bombs.

I love all these troll threads popping up all over the place...

If you are serious then i would tell him to uncap for 24 hours and recap. Let some sugar ferment out.

Maybe this is a stupid question, but what exactly is a troll? I thought it was someone who surfed boards like this until they found someone to talk $h!+ about and proceeded to do so. You didn't quote anybody, so I'm not sure who you are accusing...

I looked it over and the only post I saw that seemed like it could be mean was mine. To the OP, sorry if I came across that way.

Not just the overcarbing, but there is a chance the beer got oxygenated in the procces as well

Troll? Really? I can see how I might have worded this like a total newb but somethings you just can't make up and I'm pretty sure I posted this in the pre-school section. I was wanting to know because I haven't even bottled my first yet.
I'll use the search function and what I can't find with the search function I'll ask here and try not to look like a troll.

I may warn him about the hazards of a double carb and maybe not, I'd kind of like to know what happens myself (insert evil smily)

I'll remember the oxygen too in case it tastes funny.

No apology necessary.
I'm sure the troll comment was aimed at me. I'm really new here. Like I said my first batch isn't even in the bottles yet.

I sincerely appreciate all help too.
