Is it safe to use 1 carbonation drop for a 330ml bottle? It's usually 1
for a 375ml bottle. How much larger is the risk of exploding bottles if
I prime a 330ml bottle with 1 drop?

Re: priming a 330ml bottle



You can't blow up a bottle with a priming drop. If you prime a 330ml
bottle
with
a priming drop you'll get a little more carbonation than in the 375ml
bottle,
but
you don't have to worry about exploding bottles. If your bottles start
blowing
up
it's because of incomplete fermentation before bottling, not because of
the
priming drop.

If I were you I'd consider switching to batch priming. It's cheaper,
you don't
have to prime every bottle individually, and you never ever have to
think about
bottle sizes when bottling. See:
