I just bottled a boston ale yesterday. When i poured in the bottling sugar, the beer foamed up real quick and as i stirred it in gently, it dissolved. Did i lose all of the carbonation??? I really hope not since it was my buddies brew.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

No, you're beer is fine. The bubbles were from dissolved gas coming out of solution, but your beer was mostly flat anyway. The priming sugar will ensure that the yeast make just a little more alcohol and CO2, and since there's nowhere for the CO2 to go but into solution (under pressure due to the bottle cap), the beer will naturally carbonate itself over the next few weeks.

Slightly off topic...what the hell is a phizz?
