This might give you an idea...."Growler goes Boom"

There's a tons of threads on this. You have to realize that they are meant to hold already carbonated beer, NOT beer carbonating, where the pressure is built up the forces itself into solution. Some folks will say they have no problem, but others will say differently. To me, I sure as heck wouldn't want to play Russian Roulette with my beer.

Had some ginger beer that I "bottled" in a growler that BLEW UP in the middle of the night about six months ago and I am still finding little bits of glass in that closet.
