The standard instructions are: Make your bug; brew your sweet ginger 'tea'; cool; add bug to your tea, and bottle for second fermentation; let ferment, at room temperature, to your desired level, making sure to burp every day; refrigerate--drastically slowing, but not eliminating second fermentation.
The minor detail that I'm interested in, is that I've been burping them daily, and usually 3-5 days after I start getting audible gas, I burp them one last time, so that they don't burst, and then refrigerating them. Should I not be burping them that last time? Should I be leaving them under some pressure while they chill, so they can absorb it?
I'm wondering, because the fizz that I'm getting is decent, but pretty light. I also think I'm leaving too much headspace, but one thing at a time. 😉
