I had a batch with some gushers but no apparent infection. After
repeated sampling :-) I noticed that while some gushed, many others had
little or no carbonation. Casting my thoughts back to a frenzied
exam-week evening of bottling I came to the conclusion that my priming
sugar had probably not been evenly distributed through the beer; some
bottles got too much sugar and some got too little.
