They were way over carbed, and really not drinkable. It was like drinking soda. I tried venting, but it didn't help.

i over carbed my beer as well. it's only day 2 and its way too over carbed already (opened one and it was gushy and insanely carbed). im afraid ill have bottle bombs but they are only 2 days in the bottle so the c02 level is only going to go up right? how long should i wait for the yeast to eat more sugars before i degass them?

I've never checked a bottle on day 2 but sounds like your complete impatience paid off. How much sugar (or was it dextrose) to your beer did you use?

If they're gushing now you need to get them in a fridge. Did you open one warm? If so, stick one in the fridge for an entire day (24 hours) then open it. In the meantime put all in a covered bin and tuck them far away from foot traffic so no one is hurt if they do explode.

I'd also return to this thread where you were previously provided the best answer you could get.
