I have a case (11 bottles with caps + 1 splash on the wall) of podpiwek and I'm slightly pissed at this moment. The instructions on the box said to fill the bottles to 3/4 of the volume and no more and after an incident with overfilled bottles of kvass I measured everything to the milliliter this time. Today it turned out that 3/4 is way too much - the podpiwek didn't even foam, it was in the bottle one moment and on the wall the next.
Can I somehow still drink this - open the bottle without the content exploding out of it and catching the content somehow? I don't want to open it cap-down, because I'm 100% sure it will knock the bottle out of my hand and whatever vessel I use to catch the drink, I'm sure it will just splash back up when pouring that way.
While writing this question I realized I used twice the amount of sugar and yeast I should have used. Not counting the podpiwek mix (that's there only for flavour), I have 5L of water, flat teaspoon of dry baking yeast and 600g of sugar. It was prepared and bottled on the same day, on the Sunday evening (11 Jun). Should I be terrified?
