Will this subside or will they be this foamy forever?

Taste is awesome.

The ones I opened within the first week were perfectly carbed. Used the same 4 oz of priming sugar as I do all my beers.

I've had a few more since, all of which spent at least 24 hours in the fridge. None have foamed up at all.
Yep, you fixed it yourself. The key there was only being in the fridge a few hours with a young beer.

It's weird, but with a young newly-carbed beer, there is a ton of co2 in the headspace. Chilling the beer allows this co2 to dissolve into the beer better, as a cold liquid absorbs co2 better. So keeping in the fridge two days instead of two hours makes a big difference in a newly carbed beer.

Once the beer has been fully carbed, this process happens at room temperature as well and the co2 does dissolve into the beer. But it usually takes a few weeks at room temperature for that to completely happen.

I hope this makes sense!

The ones I'm putting in the fridge now don't seem to be foaming up. So that's good!

Found some centennials at my LHBS while picking up some other grains, so snatched some up. I'm brewing this up tomorrow night!

And brewed it up last night. Racked onto an S-05 yeast cake from an IPA I transferred to keg while the mash was going on. I did modify a little bit. I used some crystal 40, as I had it on hand, and added 1/2 lb melanoidin. Also added an extra ounce of centennial sprinkled in a little at a time between the 10 and 1 minute additions. It's been bubbling away steadily since about 15 minutes after I put the top on it. Swamp cooler holding steady at around 62-65 degrees. :-)

This beer spawned my best beer yet which was loosely based on this only using what I had on hand.

I don't have the necessary equipment for a yeast starter yet so I usually stick with the wyeast smack packs. With this beer have an OG of 1.07+ would I be better off using 2 packs for a 5 gallon extract batch?
