TIP: Don't shake your DIY CO2 -___-

Yeah I just learned the hard way what should have been obvious. I was changing out my DIY CO2 mix and was trying to clean the old container. I dumped 2/3 out, then capped the end with my hand and shook it over the sink to dislodge the sediment in the bottom. I didn't feel any pressure on my palm or in the bottle, so I let go of the end and it just erupted, covering most of my body and most of the kitchen. Now me and the kitchen smell like fermented death.

so yeah don't do that
