How did he prime again? Did he pour back into the bottling bucket, add more sugar, and bottle again? Or did he add more sugar/carb drops to each bottle?

Either way, put the bottles in a plastic tote, and wear heavy gloves and safety glasses when handling them. And keep the dog/kids/SWMBO away from the bottles.

It's a beginners beer brewing forum. Don't hesitate to ask questions because people might talk down to you. Somewhere between the clueless beginner (you and me, for example) and the helpful, genius veterans (Revvy and Yooper, for example - if you haven't seen their posts, you shouldn't have to search more than about 5 seconds), you find a condescending a-hole or two. Also some misunderstandings, so try to give the benefit of the doubt. Keep brewing and keep asking questions.

I agree with what's being said. 1 concern is the possibility of bottle bombs. That is a bad thing. Also, oxidized beer is possible. The bottles should probably be placed some place safe.

i wasn't quite sure if he just added to the bottle or unbottled the whole batch. He had some bulk sugar on hand and some little pills, so I'm not sure.

FWIW, when I bottled my fourth batch I was in a hurry and thought I'd forgotten the priming sugar in the boiling water. So I added the sugar. Turns out I had not forgotten it initially. So I double primed the batch. That night I heard some strange noises but ignored them. A week later--after returning from vacation--I checked my 12 oz. gems and found that three of them had sprayed small shards and delicious double IPA all over the closet. I now have ridiculously over carbonated double IPA. Once they are uncapped and settle a bit they are wonderful. Neighbor drinks them inspire of the foam.

Lessons
1) develop a system
2) use said system

Here is a very good one by Revvy that may help you soon http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/bott...ebrewer-94812/ I would read it before you bottle your first batch.

I'm a big fan. I like your user id too. a No.1 in that caliber is next on my list when I can bootleg enough to pay for it. LOL Of course, I wouldn't mind having one of the Sharps either. Do you patch or grease yours?
