Commercial beer BOMBS!
« on: June 07, 2010, 05:34:09 PM »
I have a case carton of various vintages of barley wines in my basement.  I went to select one today and the first one I picked up was an empty bottle!  It was a 2009 Victory Old Horizontal.  Apparently it burst out the bottom, drenching the whole case.  Which actually was probably a good thing as the cardboard absorbed most of the liquid and the shock of explosion so there were no other causalities.  I only had 3 left of the 2009.  I am chilling one down now to see if I can determine if it is an infection or not.

I have had homebrew explode but never had a commercial beer do that.  Anyone else ever had that happen?  Hope it doesn't happen again.
