6 oz beer + 12 oz bottle = bottle bomb?
I bottled about 6 oz of beer in a 12 oz bottle so I can shake it up on occasion and hopefully oxidize the crap out of it just to know what an oxidized beer tastes like. Afterwards I started wondering if this is more likely to be a bottle bomb. Common sense tells me greater head space means a lesser concentration of air pressure but I figured it wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion from someone more experianced.

I do it but it always ends up over carbed, havent had a bottle bomb yet but have only dont it with low carbed beers. I should probably stop sense I bottle condition a few feet from my bed
