i have stubbies and long necks mostly siera nevadas and sam adams respectively. i was wondering if the smaller ones will carbinate quicker then gush and blow up if i bottle at the same time with the same beer?

Both Sierra Nevada and Sam Adams use 12 oz bottles. Differences in volume will lead to differences in carbonation time. Differences in shape will not.

No....It's fine to use various size bottles...besides the sam adams and the longnecks are BOTH 12 ounce bottles...

But it doesn't matter, you can bottle 12 ouncers, pints and bombers and they all will be fine...but generally speaking the 12 ouncers will carb and condition a bit faster than larger sizers...but none will gush and blow unless you add two much priming sugar...
