Any thoughts on why the glass of my beer bottles would crack and explode before the caps would blow? It's a barley wine style, it sat in secondary for at least two months, appeared to be finished and ready for bottling, but is now causing the glass to crack and flood my floor – more than once. Opening one of the bottles indicates it is over-carbonated, thus indicating over priming or an unfinished fermentation, but why the glass and not the caps? Please help me save my barley wine.
