Heard a pop last night and spring out of bed, headed downstairs to see what had fell/happened and saw nothing. This morning had the idea it could have been one of the beers I had in the living room.
Sure enough, a single bottle of Belgian Tripel that I had in a 12 pack of others popped. I bottled this in late AUGUST!!!
Sure they were carbed high, in a Sierra Nevada bottle. 3 week primary, 4 week secondary. FG 1.010 that was steady for the whole time in secondary. I do see in my notes that I put more priming sugar than I normally use… 3/4 cup. Could that 1/4 cup make all the difference?? It could have also possibly been that there was another case staked on top of the Belgian case giving some added pressure.
The good news is they were in the living room from the cellar because I had been packaging these for a Christmas gift pack. Sweet Jebus, had I given this out and it happened at someone elses house I would have been so embarrassed. I put the remaining 11 back in the cooler cellar for now.
