My black-capped Star San suffered the same fate a few months ago. Stupid caps.

Yep, me too. I don't think the color matters.

Yep, it happens with the black caps too, both of mine are broke so I used some press and seal wrap as a temp fix.

I've had the black caps split on me before. Now I'm just very careful not to over-tighten them.

North Country Malt, when I facilitated a bulk buy. Picked up a gallon of Starsan and a 50# bucket of PWB. I split the bucket with a few folks though.
