I've done that as well. My lid is now reinforced with electrical tape, lol.

Same here - both of mine are broken now. And the bottle's still about half full.

did that myself, now I just seat the lid and give it a tiny bit more, fortunately mine broke towards the bottom of the bottle, no issues with the new one thus far

Never over tightened the lid but have had a little run down the bottle. Etches the formica countertop quite nicely.
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Dont ever let it sit in the direct FL sun while on top of a nice tool box. There is no paint on half of it now. Strong stuff.

Yet according to the inventor when diluted correctly you can drink it? Truth or urban legend I don't know.
