Default Stopping gushers?

Has anyone ever made bottle conditioned soda that didn't gush out when opened? I make a ginger ale that eeryone loves, but every single bottle gushes 1/2 the bottle out if not vented every couple seconds for 15 - 20 minutes.

I have a brewing buddy who says he could never get it right, and that's why he kegs all his sodas now.

I only make soda. When I did use yeast, I found the gush factor had more to do with temperature than sugar or yeast. When it was really warm in my apartment, they would blow when opened if I didn't refrigerate them in time.
