That's exactly what happened to me the first time, and yes, seeing the brown ale splattered across the wall, and discovering glass shards everywhere was disturbing and sort of terrifying. I'm confused this time (my Ipa exploded last night) because I didn't move it around a whole lot and fermentation as far as I could tell was done.
EFaden, what yeast were you using for your exploding bottles? Also, were they old, I"m not sure how old my bottles are at this point, or how often they've been used.
