I made a couple of mistakes as I prepared to bottle my most recent batch.
First, I neglected to take a hydrometer reading before adding priming sugar. My target FG was 1.017 but I hit 1.020 with the sugar. How much of this variance can be attributed to the corn sugar?
Second, I overestimated how much beer I had and am worried I over primed. I added 4 oz thinking I had 4.75 gallons but I really had about 4. Could this, combined with the potentially stalled fermentation, result in bottle bombs?
On the positive side, the beer tasted good.
