    Will try this too, i am looking at doing a wheat beer and adding some raspberry honey at the
    end of the boil, or doing some fruit addition later. By all accounts that can lead to some
    vigorous ferment...

    Yes, the pressure gets much higher. When carbonated beer is filled into a growler the co2 is in
