I often spend time in the drinks aisle of the supermarket just looking at bottles.
These had delicious original contents and an obvious recycle appeal.

**UPDATE**
I just did my first pressure release. What a satisfying 'Pop'!~and very active still.

UPDATE DAY TWO
Got home from work and went to pressure release the bottles. First one 'POP!' but so active I lost half a bottle of lemonade before I could get the top back on.
I had to get Grumpo to help - he has strong hands and was able to ease the lids and decompress without losing liquid.
I am wondering that because it is Summer the brew is going fast in the warm weather - temperature in the cupboard is around 18 - 20°C during the day (64-68°F). I think I will de-gas in the morning before work and again at night when I get home.
Roll on Thursday!Big smile

>>>I think I will de-gas in the morning before work and again at night when I get home.<<<

That sounds like a good idea; once they are finished and/or obtain a level of carbonation that you like, they can be refrigerated. The carbonation should have pretty much run its course by then, but the refrigeration will stop it.Thumbs Up

My guess is that the over-carbonation might be a result from the fermentation not having quite completed. Depending on the recipe, an extra day or two before bottling won't hurt anything. Opening the bottles slowly (if possible) will help with any over-flows. Once the yeasts in the batch run out of fermentable sugar, they go dormant and settle to the bottom.

Ron,

This is absolutely extraordinary.

Now, not to digress, however, the famous historical aperitif / cordial in Romania is PLUM ..

So, let´s get some Romanian Plum Brandy going .. It is an aged Plum Wine !! It is served extremely chilled ..

Have a great evening.

I had several comments made on some of my old Mediterraean posts, and have answered them ..
