I'm dealing with bottle bombs because I was off in my calculations of priming sugar. I brew 5 gallon batches, keg half of it in a 2.5G Corny and bottle condition the rest.

I took the normal 5oz of priming sugar, put half in the bottles and 2/3 of what remained in my keg. What am I doing wrong???

The beer was in the primary for two weeks and spent another 3 in the secondary. I'm pretty sure it was a priming sugar misjudgment. I'm more concerned with how to remedy it....
