This is a wonderful suggestion. Would there be any concern with replacing the dry yeast with two smack packs of Irish Ale yeast? (its a symbolic wedding thing)

I didn't write down how much priming sugar I added. I added it to the bottling bucket. The gravity was a little high at 1.020

Thank you very much. Do you have a specific 5 gal recipe to share? I am looking for any replacement. I have no idea yet why the other batch failed so explosively. My first bottle bombs. 5 bottles exploded, I opened the rest, all foamed over, some foamed over like geysers, beer doesn't smell or tasty "funny", fermented for a total of 3 weeks, been in bottles for 2 weeks before exploding.

comment Beeswax for bottle waxing
This is what I used and it worked very well. amazon.com/gp/product/B000SPNHJI/… The reason I wanted to make my own bottling wax is two fold. One is color selection. I can create any color I want to match my labels or look I am going for. The second reason is that I think making it yourself embodies the whole principle of homebrewing. I don't brew beer because it is easier or cheaper, I could just the same walk to the store and buy a bottle of beer, just the same as I can go buy sealing wax.

comment Beeswax for bottle waxing
I attempted making a bottle wax already using hot glue gun glue, crayons, and paraffin wax melted together in a clean soup can. Prior to dipping the bottles, I wrapped a strip of filament tape under the cap to create an easy pull strip. This method worked pretty well. The bottles turned out looking great, easy to open, but the wax was too brittle. A friend suggested adding beeswax, and I was wondering if someone had experience with this.
