Carefull. Figure out why it happened if you can,and never do it again. Cola extract? Like for making pop/cola?Sweetner? Concentrated stuff?

Its the only thing I can attribute to the high carbonation. Its called homebrew cola soda pop base from rainbow flavors inc. It was a simple irish stout recipe. For the first 2 to 3 weeks there was almost zero carbonation. The taste was pretty awful, very yeasty. Something about the cola that really brought out that off flavor, other than that it would have made a great stout. Thought I would let it sit like a typical stout for a few more weeks atleast but now its ant food. Popped the last few bottles outside because cleaning beer and soda off the ceiling is a bitch. Like bottle rockets

This stuff:



I'm assuming so since that's what they sell at my LHBS.

The only thing in there that would ferment would be the gum arabic, but I can't imagine it would be that much to create that much extra CO2. Very weird.

Truly a mystery. I had another brew that was like popping a shaken champagne bottle. I put 2 cups of arizona iced tea mix in the fermenter after a pilsner grain mash. That I could understand with all the sugar but most fermented out. This, just one for the books never to do again.
