Bottling Hefeweizen-seems like a lot of sugar!
I'm using a couple of calculators to get about 3.9 CO2 volumes to get my Hefeweizen (fermented with Weihenstephan yeast) true to style. I have 5 gallons of beer in my carboy and the calculators are giving me a priming sugar amount of about 8-8.3 ounces of priming sugar.
This seems like a lot to me! Do I run the risk of bottle bombs with this much priming sugar?
I've have my beer in secondary for 10 days, so I'm not worried about restarting fermentation of malt sugars.
