Default Gushers!

Well, not that big of a problem yet I brew 7.5 gal. batches and bottle in 22 oz. bottles. I put them in fridge on my patio as I drink them, not any more. I usualy let them carb up in boxes behind my couch. The first 12 went as normal, no gushers. Then I put my second case in, so far when I started opening them for my consumption, I take a drink put it down..... GUSHER! I put the rest of that batch in fridge. Hope the foam calms down some or SWMBO will not let me drink in house It's been warm lately so may be they are just getting a little too much temp.

So you're drinking your HB right out of the bombers? I think a lot of folks here will tell you that you're missing out on a lot of the aroma and maybe flavor that you worked so hard to brew into the beer.

So first, I'd say pour the beer into a glass. It doesn't sound like your gushers are all that bad (i.e. the beer's not shooting out when you open the bottle), so a gentle pour will probably take care of the problem. If not, try chilling them in the freezer for 15-20 minutes before you pour; then let the poured beer warm in the glass to a better drinking temp.
