This is my first time entry in any forum. I'm a novice at home brewing and have been using kits till recently. I have bashed a Red Ale kit with amylase enzyme and an extra pound of DME. My OG. was 1044. after a fermenting of 8 days my spec. grav ran a constant 1006 for an additional 4 days totaling 12. I bottled it priming the racking container with 1/2 cup of corn sugar. I let it rest a couple of weeks and found myself with a beer I liked well enough to give to a friend. Recieved a call from him telling me I had solved my lack of head problems. When it stopped blowing foam he got just a little taste. I just tried to open one of my last three bottles and the neck blew off opening up my hand. Should the priming sugar be used when upping the octane with added DME?? Is a FG of 1006 too High? Help!
