I have a home ale brew in a tub from a kit, and I added 20 teaspoons of sugar to the beer as instructed (the equivalent of 1 half teaspoon per bottle) but this was about 10 days ago. I haven't bottled it yet and I'm not likely to be able to for another 5 days.
I was aware that the addition of the sugar was what caused the gases to accumulate. So after so long, have I ruined the brew? Is there some way to save it?
