One of my friends accidentally boiled a whole 1lb bag of for corn sugar and added to our 5 gallon batch. Any ideas of what will happen? I’m pretty nervous, hoping it nothing goes wrong.

For bottle priming?

If so, dump them before they explode.

Indeed, let it out! Perhaps you can gently pour all the beer back in a fermentation vessel, let it ferment out and bottle again with a proper amount of sugar?

Any idea how long I should let it ferment out ?

My opinion, don’t bother. It’s going to oxidize terribly at this point, if you open those bottles and pour them back in to a fermenter. Just dump it down the drain.

Cut your losses, scold your friend.

Ice em down hard, pour into pitchers, have a rager.

Still scold your friend though.

You are not a real homebrewer until you’ve had to mop the ceiling. You may well be on your way son.

Haha. Nothing like brewing your first stout and having 40 bottles explode. Reminds me of college. Mega mess.

I have yet to mop my ceiling. Though I did have to cut the carpet out of a room after a keg unloaded itself very slowly...
