There's to need to start multiple threads surrounding a single question/issue.

Please provide more information about your brewing ingredients, process and fermentation protocol, and perhaps you'll get some meaningful answers.

my first beer i ever brewed had the over carbed problem as well... later on i found out that the hops i used were known to help retain the head on a beer... and that i had left them in the boil too long Doh! it was really hoppy goodness but it took like 10 min for each one to settle down after the pour into a glass. otherwise it was like a giant foam puff if you weren't careful.

i also brew at around 4500 feet... and i use 3/4 cup dextrose to prime per 5 gal.

Well, I'd love to provide details, but other than two weeks in primary, I don't really have any numbers.

I'll just assume that that is my problem and be more detailed in my process next time.

Actually, the current batch I have is pretty much complete. I'll try to recap them.

Thanks for all the replies!
