While it looks funny when it happens, you need to be aware that you were this . . close to having a bottle bomb go off in your hand. Take the rest and open them outside, wearing gloves and eye protection while handling them. They sound a bit like a shotgun blast when they blow and they can spread glass fragments for over 30 feet.

I warned the brewer's of this batch about this.

I did not open any of them, nor will I open them. Again, this was not my brew, it was a few of my buddies.

Humpf! If one blows, is the whole batch bad? You decide.
