Carbonation Problems

Another desirable feature of a well-made beer is carbonation, and this is another area where homebrewers can experience problems. These problems can range from too little carbonation, or flat beer, to excessive carbonation where the beer gushes from the bottle. These problems are usually a sign that either bottle priming with sugars or keg priming with carbon dioxide didn't go as planned. Either way, fixing these issues is fundamental because proper carbonation is an important element of a satisfying, refreshing beer. Explore our troubleshooting section for more detailed information on diagnosing beer carbonation problems, their causes, and their cures.
