I reported here a few weeks back that my nut brown ale was gushing and foaming in the glass. I tried a few more after and they seemed OK once they were cold. But now every one I open gushes and is just too fizzy.
I assume I put too much bottling sugar in. Should I have lowered the amount of sugar since this was a higher gravity to start, 1.060? The FG was 1.014, so it should have been ok, but should I have used less? I used the pre-measured amount that came with the kit, 5oz I think. The instructions just say to use it all.
On top of this I don't particularly like it anyway, it has a medicinal taste, cloves I think (I also started that Virginia Ham thread about it). So all in all, not a very good beer. I think I got a little overconfident with it. It still won't go to waste.
My next brew was an ESB that is just starting to be drinkable and this one has no noticeable problems and is really good.
