I've been brewing for about a decade, and every once in a while I get a brew which ages out and becomes excessively carbonated, as in the entire contents slowly bubble out of the bottle when opened.
I am always careful about having things clean, C-brite or B-brite, long boils, prestart the yeast to give it a head start on anything eveil, etc, etc. And another batch of the same recipe usually gives the same result, although I hate to do a test which takes a long time to give a result.
This isn't a huge pop and spurt, just a slow 1-2 minute conversion of all liquid to head.
I don't find any hints on this other than general "keep it clean" comments which don't seem likely to be the problem. After bottling brews are storage in a dark 52-55F cellar until used. I'd love to predict which brews will age well and which will turn to garbage, without waiting for several years to find out.
