Hah, I'm terrified of the remaining bombers, which is a good name for them.

stick em in the fridge if you are really worried about them. That will keep them from carbing up any more.

Many, if not all, growlers (1/2 gallon or 1 gallon) aren't designed to carb beer in. What you have right there is living proof. Sorry for the lost beer man. Happy no one was injured. Cheers!!!

Yea, I put them in the fridge. I screwed up and assumed 2.6oz of corn sugar was by weight, I guess not. It was for 3 gal.

i think it is usually measured by weight. but the amount of sugar is different for different sized bottles. i think you are supposed to use less priming sugar (per amount of beer) for bigger bottles

The growler certainly has a very thin wall. Lesson learned.
