Too much foam...only when warm

What went wrong? Was this supposed to happen? Should I throw it out? What do I do now?

Too much foam...only when warm

Postby Teeroy » Sun Apr 16, 2006 3:23 pm

Just did my first attempt at home brewing, using the Brewer's Best European recipe.

All went well, and the taste is good, but unless I put the bottle in the fridge to get good and cold before opening it up, I have terrible foam over when I pop the bottetop. I store the beer at around 65-68 in my basement.

Fermentation (no secondary), OG, FG, etc. were all as expected per the recipe, and I don't detect any off odors or tastes (but what do I know -- I just know I think it tastes pretty good :P ), just the problem with the excessive foaming. The recipe says it should be ready to go after two weeks in the bottle, which is where I am now.

Any suggestions?

thx

Just Started brewing myself recently and had a similar problem. Listed as "Excessive carbonation" under "General" topics. Got a few replies and seemed to provide some information. Maybe they could help you out as well.
