That's wher ebottling in PET comes in handy, you can chill, then slowly untwist the cap till foam comes out then retwist and repeat. Plus they don't explode!

You can do a similar thing with a Grolsche bottle but these things were so overcarbonated I did this over a period of a month with no noticable improvement.

i had problems with overcarbing all my big beers. on the last batch, an imperial red, i decided i didn't want to dump the batch. i tried a low-tech solution that worked! SLIGHTLY pry each cap just enough to relieve the pressure, let sit for 30 minutes to an hour or so (there will be foam that runs down the sides - don't worry) then recap tightly when foaming has stopped. wait a couple weeks and viola! it saved two cases of beer for me and didn't cost a thing.

I've done that once with success. Saved a good batch of raspberry stout.
