I came home today to a puddle of beer in my pantry. The culprit was a 22 fl.oz. bottle of a bourbon stout that was conditioning. I'm not sure if I bottled too soon, added too much sugar, or have a possible infection on my hands. After cleaning up I moved the remaining bottles to the garage. Half are in a box and the other half are in wine carriers with a doubled up bath towel over them to (hopefully) contain the glass should another explode. Here's what I've done to this point:
Brew day: 8/5/12
Used Northern Brewer's Bourbon Barrel Porter kit http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/b...tract-kit.html
OG 1.057 (corrected for 68°F)
One week: 8/12/12 - Gravity is 1.023 (corrected for 74°F)
One week plus one day: 8/13/12 - gravity was stable, so I racked to the secondary (glass carboy)
Four weeks minus one day: 9/1/12 - Added oak cubes and a split (but not scraped) vanilla bean to 18 fl. oz bourbon
Four weeks: 9/2/12 - Poured the soaked oak cubes and bourbon into the secondary. Dropped three cubes and the vanilla bean on the floor during transfer, so they didn't go into the secondary.
Six weeks: 9/16/12 - Bottling Day
Final gravity is 1.022 (Corrected for 74°F)
Dissolved 3/4 cup corn sugar in 2 cups water and added to bottling bucket.
Bottled in 22 fl.oz. bottles and capped with black
Ten weeks: 10/14/12 - One bottle exploded, the others were moved to the garage to minimize damage/cleanup should more explode.
So my question: Should I vent and recap the remaining bottles? What did I do wrong?
