Have you changed anything else? This happened to me once when I bottled on top of a new table
that was a few inches higher than I was used to. It took a lot more force to cap and I broke a

Posted in thread: Priming sugar mishap on 04-18-2014 at 12:57 PM
High alcohol beers can take a while to carb. I made one at 10% that was mostly there at 4

beer is flat it s...

My stab at these:A) Oak powder is still oak - it's basically leftovers from making the "fancy"
