I was wondering how to determine the amount of co2 needed during bottling to carbonate the beer?

So if you follow this...I shouldn't have a problem with bottle bombs?

As long as it's at final gravity, not contaminated and you use the proper amount of priming your save.

I've had two bottles break (not bombs,) one must have had some kind of impact damage and popped a perfectly round hole out the side--no problem other than just a wet box. The other just had sanitize in it and shattered from a very thin place in the glass. It was a flip-top from France that had been used maybe three times.
