Hi all, can anyone shed a bit of light. I did a extract kit MJ APA, fermented for just under 3 weeks at 20°C in my brew fridge, dry hopped for 4 days, cold crashed at 1° for 3 days and bottled for 3 weeks conditioning at room temp, however I’ve noticed in some bottles a little bit of stuff floating at the top and when opened it fizzes up like a bottle of coke and seems massively carbed even though i put less than recommended dose in each bottle, i used 1 sugar drop in a 500ml bottle so its not a case of over carbonation, it doesn’t have a vinegary smell or taste even though it doesn’t taste great just like a very fizzy beer. I’m just wondering if fermentation had stalled and i thought it had finished and bottled it too early and it’s carried on fermenting in the bottle or is it an infection? Would an infection cause it to fizz up like a bottle of coke? I don’t want to throw it away just yet in case it will right itself with a bit of time. By the way i did a MJ IPA extract kit at the same time and that has turned out great, same amount of carbonation. The APA og was 1048 and fg was 1014. The IPA og was 1054 and fg 1006. Thanks for any advice as always. Flan.
