Hey all, just finished bottling my first batch of apfelwein. I bottled 14 wine bottles, and thought I had about 2g left, so I primed with 2 oz by weight of corn sugar. After mixing and putting into the beer bottles, I only got about 15.5 bottles of beer, not the 20 I expected. So, I should have used 42g priming sugar, not the 56 grams I actually used. Is this over primed enough to risk bursting to bottles, or will it just get extra bubbly??

Thanks

Wine bottles are not made to hold carbonation pressure but with a normal beer you should be ok. You corked you beer though?

The primed apfelwein is in beer bottles w/caps.
