So I brewed up a double IPA last month and it's been bottled for two weeks now. I tested one after a week in the bottle and there was very little carbonation and there was still a very strong sweetness. I know I should give it at least 2-3 weeks in bottles, but all my other batches have been during warmer months and they were pretty good (fully carbonated and not overly sweet) after a week. Since my house is hovering around 60 degrees, I stuck the beer in a small room with a space heater to keep them ~70. That was a couple days ago. I cooled one off and tried it this afternoon. It had more carbonation (foamed over - lost about 1/2 the beer), but still very sweet.
I wouldn't have posted, but I'm worried something went wrong since there's so much sweetness remaining and this bottle was a foamy mess. I don't have the full recipe in front of me, but it was 10 lbs LME, .5 lb carapils, .5 lbs. crystal 60, .5 lb corn sugar, along with a large hop bill. Primary fermentation was ~2 weeks and I dry hopped in primary for ~2 weeks. The gravity was ~ 1.011 for the whole dry hop period. 1.5 packets of rehydrated US-05. I used 5 oz. of corn sugar for bottling.
Should I wait it out? Should I de-gas and re-cap? Don't want a bunch of bottle bombs - especially since I'm leaving town for a week and won't be able to clean it up until I get back.
Thanks in advance for the help.
