Default bottling gallon and half gallon jugs

Has anybody else tried this and what were the results? Tried this with my last batch and had a bottle break, fortunately it was in a five gallon pail so no mess. Unfortunately I lost a gallon of hefewiezen. This was supposed to be an alternative to bottling a bunch of 22 qnd 12 ounce bottles.

It's just a guess, but probably the geometry and thickness of the glass of those jugs just can't take pressure? They aren't usually filled with pressurized liquid in any event.

Welcome to the forum. And get some kegs

Cheers!
