    Exploding Bottle or Bulging Cap


    A. Bacterial infection due to poor sanitation technique
    B. Over priming - used too much corn sugar or DME when bottling.
    C. Incomplete fermentation (bottled too soon or stuck fermentation)

    Corrective Action:

    A. Refer to sanitation practices.
    B. For 5 gal., 3/4 C corn sugar or 1-1/4 C DME is usually plenty.
    C. Refer to fermentation practices.


    Buy a homebrew kegging system and take the hassle out of bottling.
