to the OP: the reason to do this is to control bottle bombs. if you bottle too soon and the bugs in there aren't done fermenting, they might keep going inside the bottle and build up pressure to the point of explosion. if you have the bottles inside a plastic container at least that will limit the damage they cause.

alternately, let that thing be for a few months and give it time to do it's thing.

It had WAY too much headspace to sit for a year. A few weeks would have been fine. It's now a "sour", so you can let it sit or bottle it but watch for bottle bombs!

Ya, he's on to something here. What a nice way to take your antibiotics. Phooey they say not to drink while taking them, as you can see they work perfectly together.
