So I transferred American wheat to 1 gallon jars about 23 hours ago and added frozen fruit to them. (Thawed). I came home tonight to all of the stoppers being blown (literally) off. I feel like it is a sanitary environment and with that much co2 activity it would have kept everything out. I am re sanitizing everything and pouring some liquid out and re sealing. Any thoughts?

I re sanitized everything, poured a little out and re sealed. I think it will be ok. I hope it is ok. We will find out in a few weeks!!

I am confused...are you fermenting them currently? The co2 needs to escape somehow if you are...

I started the American wheat Monday. Last night I transferred it to 1 gallon jugs with thawed frozen fruit. I over filled my jugs and the stoppers blew off
