Default 30+ Bottle bombing photo

Made a chocolate coffee stout with Hershey's syrup. Must have kicked a whole bunch up while transferring to bottling bucket, which i believe probably doubled my priming sugar. I heard what sounded like shotgun blasts down in my basement and...

I'm sorry for your loss... It's terrible when something tragic happens to our dear friends. After experiencing a couple bottle bombs due to uneven priming sugar mixing I now bottle a couple of each batch in brown plastic PET bottles so as soon as they get rock hard I know the batch is carbonated and can be moved to the fridge.

How do you clean that mine field?

Sorry for your loss... It's like your own private hurt locker.

About to start cleaning, was a double batch, hoping to salvage the 50 or so that are left, put them in fridge for couple of days and then re-cap...which is what I should have done when I had the first one explode from this batch a month of guy. My own fault. Calling child protective services on myself.

Did the blast open those doors or were they already ajar?

The brewniverse is punishing you for not delabeling bottles.

Ouch! I remember how bad it sucked to clean up bombs, and how PISSED off SWMBO was!

About all you can do is cool em down and relieve the pressure like you said. After the bombs I kept all my beer in tubs until I got my kegging setup.
