I used my Mr. Beer to make some limeade for SWMBO, and checked on it every 4 hours for the first 48 to make sure this didn't happen.

It was just limeade, so it didn't.

Wow! That's some really volatile stuff your brewing there! Hey, how about this name for your brew? "Cranberry Volcano"

If you knew then what you knew then, do you think you'd of gone for a 3 gallon pail and airlock instead for lest than half the price?

Wow. Can you repair it? Seems like it would be a shame to lose your equipment. I was looking at picking up one of those, but now I think I'll stick to my trusty glass carboys w/ airlocks.
