Having a messy week so far. Had 2 bottles of Strong Ale explode on Saturday after moving them out of the basement to do some cleaning, then last night the cap blew of my better bottle filled with Citrus Weizen. I feel like I've been cleaning up beer all week.

Sounds like no fun at all...

I usually start out with a blowoff tube, then switch to bung if it doesn't look threatening.

Didn't think the wiezen beer would need a blow off tube. My bad.

And I used Zyiec Bottles for the strong ale. That's got to be the thinest glass bottle I ever seen. My bad again.

All I can say is I won't happen again. I think I'll use evens suggestion to always start with a blow off tube
