Don't use Deschutes Bottles!
Tonight I was going through my backlog of bottles that still had labels on them and giving them an Oxyclean soak and de-labelling.
When I removed the first Deschutes label and looked at it there was a noticeably large (about 1/4" in diameter) bubble in the glass.
Out of the 6 pack that I cleaned there were 4 that had largish bubbles in the glass. That's a recipe for bottle bombs!
I love Deschutes beer and will continue to drink it. I won't be saving the bottles any more, though.
