My SWMBO tried to brew a simple ginger beer using PET bottles while I was gone recently....the results were...errr....explosive! Huge mess in the kitchen....

I use the same bottles to make carbonated water and pressurize them to about 60PSI....so this one was WAY up there in PSI.

we had two bb incidents both were due to what was probably weak used bottles. since then i store bottles in cases where the bottles are separated by a divider and i also put a blanket on the top to contain the blast

the mess was huge...
