I usually just pull one out of the cupboard in my basement and straight to a glass. I don't often refrigerate my brew... Now that you mention it though, some of my beers do seem under-carbed !?!?

Yea its going to be hard not to drink em. I can honestly say i plan to drink one at the one week mark, and then again at the two week mark because i am new to this stuff and would like to get a feel for the different stages. After that, being in the Navy i have a 2 week 'business trip' i have to go on so that should give those beers plenty of time mellow out. This 'business trip' can definitely work for my brewing though. Tomorrow i am going to whip up another batch and try to get it bottled before i leave and (hopefully) get another batch in the fermenter (or possibly secondary) right before i leave. I dunno, depends on how fast the next batch can ferment and how soon the carboy gets here i suppose.

As to the question of bottle bombs, look at this video and you will see that bottle bombs are named so for a reason. I remember one video that showed bottle glass stuck into the sheet rock, but I can't seem to find that one at the moment.

Video says No longer available!
