And yet another post! Overcarbed a blonde a few days ago, and used this very same method again; only had to do it twice before perfect pours. This works so well, as a matter of fact, that I am currently overcarbing a NEIPA ON PURPOSE so I can have it on tap today, as my kids are here for a visit, and the daughter is keen to try this one. Got my spunding valve at the ready, I'm sure it will work again as it has twice in the past. Life/Beer saver!!!

Well, I got to find out how well the One Weird Trick works.

I kegged a Weissbier on Friday and set the regulator to 30 psi, as I've done for years, intending to leave it for 24 hours. We went to our grandson's football game the next day and I forgot to shut the gas off. With a 4 gallon batch there was a lot more headspace so, when I tried the beer the next day it was way over carbed.

The One Weird Trick works as advertised.
