So I just made a stupid stupid mistake. I was brewing three batches at the same time and just started bottling yesterday. I used a cabornation guide to try to determine the exact amount of priming sugar to use (all the tables use fluid oz right??) based on temperature etc.
Anyway, long story short I mistakenly put 1.25 cups of priming sugar instead of .6 cups into 4.5 gallons of a lite summer ale recipe:
I gave them a bit of extra room at the top while bottling - but am I at serious risk of exploding bottles?
Can I correct this by just drinking them sooner or should I still wait 2 weeks before chilling and drinking?
Try one everyday until they are carbonated right (cool it and drink it just like a regular beer). Then put all of them in the fridge and get them cold to stop the yeast. I would leave them cold until you are able to drink them from that point on.
