Over Carbonated Beer - 500mm holds bag Brown Bag Special!

Recommended Posts

I was surprised to see a brown bag special in a 500 ml bottle become quite swollen.

 

Hats off the 500 mm bottle for holding back the carbonation!

 

Should I toss this bottle after opening?

 

Here is a pic comparing a normal carbonated bottle next to the swollen one.

This was the last bottle of the batch and a little too much trub slipped in.  I am glad the bottle held.  I opened it over the sink and it was old faithful of foam for a minute.  The beer tasted fine but there was sediment.  I am impressed with Mr Beer PET bottles!

 

This particular bottle and cap will be recycled and saluted for not making a mess in my beer conditioning area!

I've had some distended bottoms on them, but never one like that!

Looks like me before and after a high-sodium dinner!  If the expanded bottle isn't perforated you may as well keep it and reuse it.  At least that's what I'd do.

I've had bottles vent from the cap, but never expand like that. I am not sure as to the integrity of the bottle.
