I bottled a cream ale this past Saturday. I had been using an online calculator to figure how much priming sugar to add. My past two batches have come out a bit flat so I decided to add a bit more sugar than the calculator suggested. It suggested 2.8oz of cane sugar for 5 gallons. We ended up with about 5.5 gallons and I added 4oz of sugar. When we finished bottling we tasted a little bit that was left over. It was very sweet. We put the bottles in some plastic storage containers incase they blew up. I haven't heard anything blow up yet. How long after bottling would you think until you are out of the woods?
