Yeah this is a correct statement; the yeast will multiply and eventually eat all of the sugar.
This is what I wrote in my very lengthy (I don't blame you for not making it to the end)

Overall, I'm leaning towards too little time in the primary. My theory:1)There's heavy yeast
action, a feeding frenzy2)I see the action settles down and things get quiet. 3)I

You really should know your OG and FG, especially for identifying a bottle bomb issue.
Consistent measurement of gravity with the date is going to be key to identify what could be
happening here.I act...

A good point. Regular yeast seems to take 24 hours before visibly fermenting, and that's with
millions introduced in visible amounts. A few microscopic yeasts shouldn't be able to reach a

I'm making a basic Pilsner for the summer. Since I finally got myself a house, and it came with

The tester batch was cold, but only 8 hours in the fridge cold. I usually do 48+
hours.Hopefully the rest won't be an issue. it was crazy how the sediment/yeast rose right up
