Had 8 bottles of cider explode in my fridge last night. Biggest mess I've ever seen. Glass EVERYWHERE. These were bottles that were cold-crashed a couple months back and put in the fridge. Well, now that the fridge has reached 20C with the resent IPA fermentation, I guess the yeast woke up and went to town on the remaining sugar. Result: BIG mess, no cider left.

Oh well, already got more apple concentrate. Next time I'll make it a low-enough gravity so I can let it ferment out.
Cheers!

The one time a remote web camera would be cool in the fermentation chamber....

I just had a Nut Brown implode in my bottle conditioning closet. First one I've had in over 20 or so batches. It's been in the closet conditioning for 4 or 5 weeks. Tastes great and I'm hoping it was just a rogue bottle bomb and the rest will be ok. Time will tell I guess.
