comment Over-carbonating in the bottle
How long is a "little while" in minutes ? I'm getting the same on most batches and we cap almost immediately after filling the bottles.

comment What happens if I Double Brown Ale
This came out great ! It's a little bit too heavy on the chocolate, the raspberries were a little tart as well. I should have aged them for a couple of days. Other than that its one of my favorite.

comment Will hop plants choke grape vines
Yea, I think the hops will overtake the grapes, better safe than sorry I moved the hops to another location.

comment Make root beer without a refrigerator
I bottled in plastic, after a few days when the bottles were firm and apparently carbonated. I did put them in a hot pot 150-160F for 15 minutes. The smaller capped bottles did better than the bigger ones. All of them bulged and looked like they were about to explode. Some of them started hissing / leaking on the caps. I relieved the pressure on some of the bigger bottles as the caps were looking like they were going to shoot off. Then cooled them down and able to keep at household temp.

That sounds good, I was thinking using glass bottles, i can have one or two plastic as well to gauge the firmness. Is that how it's done at the factory, do they pasteurize before sending it out ?
