    Thanks for the tips. I agree priming with sugar would save the headaches.. but I guess in a way
    I wanted to try to Speisse method. I found a handy calculator online for calculating speisse

    The beer turned out great! Sorry I forgot to post back. The recipe is a definite keeper .
    Started out as a Bell's Oberon clone, but I can't get Bells in Brazil so I can't harvest yeast
