Default Over carbed Cream Ale,should I uncap and recap?

Stuff is really overcarbed, almost like drinking straight up seltzer. Should I bother uncapping them and waste the last of my caps or just deal with it?

If I do uncap and recap how long should I leave the caps off and should I do it warm or cold?

No pro at this, but if it were my beer, I would put it all in the refrigerator to stop the yeast from making any more CO2 first. (will also prevent bottle bombs)

Then give it a few days and try one. If still too carbed try a long pour to release the excess CO2. It may take a while to pour a glass, but it could be the easy way out.

If not I'd think poping the caps and recaping would force some of the CO2 out of suspension and might get you where you want.

Good Luck!

Ended up recapping because even in the fridge for days it's still over carbed and spritzy.
