I am going to bottle my Belgian Golden Strong and I will prime it at 4 volumes. I will probably use the short style Belgian bottles with standard caps. Should I have any concern about bottling and capping at 4 volumes?

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by short style belgian bottles, but 4 is definitely somewhere in the vicinity of the upper limits that most bottles will handle. I had a cream ale carbonated to about 3.5 volumes and I lost a few when the weather warmed up.

One of these?

It will be fine. They're meant to hold the level of carbonation that Belgian beers are carbed at.

I'm facing the same issue with a tripel. I'd like to carb it to 3.5 volumes but I'm afraid of standard 12 oz bottles.

coming soon...to a fridge near you!
