All is calm in beer-land. The Mongrel Ale is still bubbling away happily in the
basement and right next to it the Imperial Stout is brooding darkly. I
transferred all the potentially explosive Hefe Weizen to the fridge yesterday,
and there has been no 'event' detected since.
I had left a couple of bottles out though and I tried them today. There was
not too much carbonation, so the one bomb might have been a fluke. The beer
tastes good and finished.
We are having a party at our house on Thursday, and with the normal
conditioning time I would not have had a hope of having the Hefe Weizen ready
by then, but with the double dose of sugar it is ready. Therefore, I will, from
now on claim, that all this extra sugar was by design.... :-) Some of the beer,
especially what is in the twistoff bottles, will hopefully, get consumed on
