What to do now? Open some other bottles and see if the carbonation level is high. If yes, then open all the bottles and release some pressure and recap. Or put the bottles in a close, water proof container and see if any more blow.

This could be the result of many causes - incomplete fermentation (bottling too early), over priming, or infection come to mind.

Ok so have a beer fermenting for 2 weeks and I used one teaspoon of demerera sugar to prime and last night, kitchen as hotter than normal and one blew. The bottom looks like it just fell out of the bottle. Am not sure if it was a weak bottle or a overcarbed. I moved them outside to the cold 6 or 7c and nothing else seems to have happened

Thanks Pappers. I just opened and recapped the bottles. There was quite a pop from the swingtop as I opened them. They are out in the cold right now any suggestions as what to do next would be greatly appreciated.
