I made a brewer's best witbier kit as my first attempt, fermented between 61-64, tasted great going into bottles.
Mixed up the priming sugar from the kit, bottled, capped, and it's resting in a dark 72 degree closet right now with a little more than a week before I can try one.
Just realized this morning that my final volume was around 4 gallons (rookie mistakes, didn't filter out spices when transferring to primary, so my siphon kept getting clogged and introducing more oxygen), and I still used the fill 5oz of sugar... Combine that with fact that the calculators I've found say that witbier tends to need not as much carbing as others (2.3 to 2.7 volumes is one I found, which equals about 3.5 ounces on a 4 gallon bagch.) and i'm afraid I've screwed the pooch on my first batch... Is there anything I can do at this point, or just ride it out? How piss poor is it going to be if it's that far overcarbed, and am I in danger of exploding sometime soon?
