Default Bottle Bomb Tester

So I made a nice cider that I back sweetened with juice concentrate and in 24 hours it was ready to drink, nice and bubbly and sweet how I like it. To stop the over carbonation and possible "bottle Bombs" I placed all my bottles in the fridge to prevent bombs. Well I decided to leave one of the bottles out to see if and when the bottle decides to explode. I will post my results.

Very cool! The darker side of me really wants to see a huge mess in that container. So forgive me when I don't wish you luck.

I use flip tops they just puke and don't blow but you might want someone else (with a sense of humor) to open the first one.

Thin plastic refrigerator drawers for protection? I don't think I'd want to be around if it the bottle goes boom!

Man, awesome I love the replies! Especially the one about failing. I actually want to see it fail too in a way... I want to see how long it takes. I will post pics and report how long it took and so on.
