+1 on the drinking as soon as.!
I almost have enough to not "need" to keep testing the previous batches early. :)
I think gaza may be using rose tinted glass, he certainly is full of optimism!

When I use brown glass I still do a few clear to go with that way you can see the yeast layer. If you leave them long enough it almost goes itself on.

Clear glass is nice too, if you are doing different carbonation levels. (more sugar in some).

PS never exceed 1tsp per bottle.

In my youth i was pals with a guy called Murray, his family owned Naris
soft drinks. Their new line was shandy and a trial batch was made with
Fullers bitter. When mixed with their lemonade it set off a serious second
ferment in the bottles, which were plastic screw top jobbies.
Making little half litre plastic hand grenades. Oh what fun was had. :lol: :lol:

I used to make things with vinegar and caustic soda. They went bang in a big way.

And there was an incident with powered match heads....

At the age of 15 a pal Mark (now no longer with us) and I poured
4 bottles of Matey foam bath into the recirculating fountain on.
The Fountain roundabout at New Malden. Well the foam grew
and bloody grew 4 or5 feet deep for the whole area. Traffic
stopped the Fire Brigade arrived and a sign was recovered from
the fountain. It said "Revenge of the foam ranger". Wasn't me
honest guvvv big boys made me do it and ran away.
You see ED been like this a long time.

Your "indescretions" are of a quality to raise a retrospective smile.
I am afraid that mine were slightly more serious.
To this day, I cannot smile about them.
Happily, I grew a moral compass.
And didn't get nicked by the rozzers.
