For whatever reason, I have a batch of APA that is a bit too carbonated for me. The 22Oz bottles are fine, but the 12Oz'rs have too much fizz. They're not gushers and if I pour carefully I can control the head...

They just have a "bite" to them.

Is there anything I can do when serving to minimize that over-carbed taste?

Chill them, uncap and re-cap. That will reduce the CO2 level.

Thanks. Yeah, I think I used the normal 3/4 cup of Corn sugar in a batch that was around 4 1/2 gallons. I was also a little aggressive in temperature (72-74) and agitating the bottles every couple of days.

I shoulda just let nature take its course, but I had a dickens of a time getting my English Ale to carboante so I was over compensating on my next batch.

Of course, my English Ale is perfectly carb'd now...
