I bottled an IPA a few weeks ago, and since i dry hopped 5 oz and didn't do a great job of getting the hops out, all my bottles had a layer of hops sitting on the bottom. Now every time I open a bottle, it opens OK but after a few seconds its starts to bubble and eventually i get a steadly flow of bubbles exiting at a steady rate and after the beer is a bit flat. Now I originally though I had an infection, but after staring at the bottle, the hop leaves are going crazy and I was reminded of an experiment I did as a kid when you put raisins in soda and they jump up and down. So I was thinking, similar to mentos and coke,
the hops may cause nucleation sites for dissolved CO2 gas and is causing the hops to flatten the beer and make a mess.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
