Love this technique, it's worked for me for at least five batches so far... knock on wood! Question though: will this work with swing-top bottles? I'm cautious to put one of my swing-tops in. If you guys think it might pop, I'll just cold crash it.

I have used it with swing top bottles 3 times so far and the only problem I had was not leaving enough headspace and getting some leakage. But that was only 1 bottle. So far I have blown up at least one regular beer bottle every time though. I attribute this to 2 things. The cheap bottles I have (very thin) and the fact that I'm doing this on an outdoor crab cooker and the temp at the bottom of the pot (100 quarts) may be closer to 200-205 instead of 190.

I haven't tried my swingtops yet, but I haven't broke a bottle by using a lower temp (180 instead of 190). I also put a dish towel on the bottom of my pot to keep the glass bottles from touching it.

Ok so I just did this exactly as the OP said to and blew up 6 bottles of cider. Glass all over the kitchen! Will my cider be ok if I just stuff it in the fridge or will they eventually blow up too?

That's sad to hear. What kind of bottles are you using? Also how carbed are they? If you keep them in the fridge they should be ok.

I used standard 12 ounce bottles and they were carbed just right, or at least I thought so. To ire on the safe side I took the remaining bottles and popped the tops on all of them and let them sit for a little while then recapped and stuck em in the fridge
