Crazy amount of head.
« on: October 24, 2014, 09:49:36 PM »
Hey all, So my stout came along pretty good. First case I had went pretty fast and I am on my last couple of bottles. I cracked one open today, as soon as the beer touched the glass instant foam. So I poured it slow, took about 10mins to fill the glass. Has anybody experienced this before? The beer dose not seem to taste over carbonated. I added about .50lbs Of CaraPlis. Could this be culprit? Thanks guys Cheers

It's not the Carapils.  You probably overprimed.  Or there is a possibility that you had a contaminated bottle, or a bottle with some extra sediment in it for the CO2 bubbles to form.  It happens once in a while.  Try a little less priming sugar next time.

I would recommend just pouring the entire bottle into a pitcher or large glass right away, rather than taking 10 minutes to pour it slowly.  Then just let it settle a bit, pour into a regular glass, and enjoy.

Clearly you mean a thread about hats. Good call.

Observation:  the act of seeing how otherwise normal people can be steered into a direction far more sophomoric than their usual by certain one syllable words. Like the sound made when ones colon presses out methane, it never ceases to be funny.

This raises a good point. What is a crazy amount? More than you're used to? But that might still be a normal amount.

I think a "crazy amount" is a matter of perspective. I've been with my wife for 13 years, so a crazy amount to me is pretty much anything more than once a year on my birthday.

So there is such a thing as a "crazy amount". "Too much" is a different story.

At the risk of getting back on topic, were you certain that it was fully fermented when you primed and bottled?
