I got 2nd degree burns last night on my upper leg / pelvis from boiling water I had "sealed" in my bucket, but the pressure was too much so the water leaked onto me, which really sucks and I have skin blisters, broken skin, etc.
Based on this experience, I conclude that my bucket lid will allow pressure out just fine. So I left my IPA in the bucket with the lid on nearly as tight as when this happened to me, hoping it does not explode over the weekend while I am away. Just in case, I put it underneath a protective sheet so the explosion won't mean my poor beer is truly exposed to the elements.
The vessel is a 25L Young's fermentation vessel, and there are about 19 liters of wort in there.
When I get home 2.5 days later, will I be facing a sea of IPA all over my apartment, or will a somewhat leaky lid solve this problem?
