You are 100% correct! The more I read about this, the more nervous I get. Another argument for preasurized CO2! I hope my wife reads these things! There are several articles I've read that recommend using heavy plastic or glass bottles. I also read one where a guy had a glass one explode while it was capped up waiting for the brew to mature. He highly recommends you NEVER do that. He said he was cleaning up tiny pieces of glass for over 3 hours, some of them VERY SHARP! As you mentioned, his apartment smelled like a brewery for quite a while after.

Eheim pimp #128, 55gal 13x20x48, Eheim Pro 2227, CO2 injected, into the filter breather tube,4x 55w Pcs , 12 hr light cycle (sunrise/sunset simulated), Milwaukee SMS 122, faulty bubble counter replaced with M3 bubble counter..... moderately Planted, Plantex CSM+B and ferts
