If you're using about a teaspoon of cane sugar per 12 oz bottle, you might have bottle bombs - could be hazardous. I'd like to hear some other opinions, but I would release the pressure in the bottles, wait for the priming sugar to ferment, and then re-prime in the bottles with the right amount of sugar. Some of the old guidelines called for 1/2 level teaspoon per 12 oz bottle.
