Oatmeal Cookie Brown Ale BIAB All Grain Kit

Product Review (submitted on January 18, 2014):
Everyone loved this beer when I brewed it. The BIAB process is fairly easy and this recipe is very tasty. One criticism of the 3-gallon kits is that the instructions don't go beyond brewing day, assuming that you are advanced enough to figure out the rest. The problem I ran into with my first batch is that I mixed the entire packet of corn sugar into the wort before bottling. The packet is actually sized for a 5-gallon kit, but this was not mentioned. My first batch was overcarbonated. I didn't get any bottle bombs, but lost a lot of beer while opening, pouring, and waiting to the CO2 to release from the beer. I called NB and they told me to use 3 ounces of the sugar for a 3-gallon batch.
