Default At Least I Didn't Kill Anyone.

So awhile back I made this big stout that finished high, which I didn't worry about since it had tons of unfermentables in it. I bottled it, and it ended up overcarbonating, so I figured I'd use it in my liquid bowl in the smoker. A friend of mine was over one day and he had some...he loved it, once the foam subsided. So I gave him a couple sixers, told him to keep 'em cold.

So he came in today, said that, last night, he was sitting around watching tv and all of a sudden, POP! POP! He opened his pantry...covered in stout and broken glass. I'm a terrible person.

You DID tell him to keep them cold. I guess next time he will do as told.

Sorry to hear that. I haven't had any bottle bombs yet, but I do have 20 bottles of sweet mead I am keeping a close eye on.

Ah - the importance of following instructions. Now he has a mess and no beer.

Oh man, I'd feel bad too. But like everyone else already said, it's his own fault. You told him to keep them chilled.

Mmmm sweet stouts are tasty, not so good for pantry redecoration though.
