Not all bottles are the same when talking standard longnecks. Different glass weight will have an impact on bottle strength, well obviously. Weigh bottles though and you will see a difference between certain breweries, where they source their glass, and what they are bottling.

well, i'm going to have to partially take back what i wrote. after a quick search here, seems there are plenty of people who have successfully primed to 3 vols in standard bottles. there were some stories of bombs, but far fewer than the success stories. there are some smart sounding people (like him saying keep it under 3 but seems like going to 3 is a safe bet.

personally, i have enough thick glass bottles stored up that when i want to go to 3 vols or over, i can do so without needing to use regular ("thin"?) glass.

interesting, didn't know that.

to check this out i weighed a bunch of bottles. here are their weights, in grams. name of brewery included when known/identifiable. these are single data points, i wouldn't extrapolate too much.
193
198 (New Belgium)
192 (Kalibur non-alc)
299 (Duvel)
220 (Hoogaaden)
216
176 (short like Sierra, thin collar)
195 (short like Sierra, thicker collar)
230
213
214 (Deschutes)
198
205
196.
(average: 210.4 with the Duvel; 203.5 without it - i.e. "regular" 12 oz bottles)

I recently bottled a Frombiose after a year in the fermenter and another 5 months on wild raspberries.

Considering you used Roeselare blend, medium to medium high carbonation is closer to style. 1g of dried yeast is fine, there is no point in putting extra yeast in the bottles.
