I had a strawberry explosion similar to the blueberry one pictured. It covered the entire pantry in strawberry goop, and even though I cleaned the hell out of the area, I still find bits of strawberry stuck to random stuff in there.

Out of the many many brews I've made I've never had a blow up.. I've had several blarf outs, seeping out of the top but no explosions.. How does one get the top to explode??

Put your stopper on tighter. Pressure will continue to build up underneath until it finally pops...

In my case a very small amount of blueberry skins got stuck in the airlock, and due to rapid fermentation it built up so fast that it popped within 36 hours of pitching.
