    So friends....when moving your precious nicotine into appropriate size bottles, be sure to leave a little head room a tiny amount just so she don't explode on ya....

    Yep I lost 50ml.....ouch

    I've never heard of that happening before. PG normally contracts, so shouldn't have any affect on the bottle unless there is a flaw in the glass. I'm thinking a flaw in the glass, plus the thermal shock of going into a very cold place while the contents are still warm might have just been enough. Just really bad luck that you maybe had a flaw which was a stress notch (concentrates the stress to a weak point) in just the wrong place.

    Just out of curiosity, did the bottle finish up in a hundred pieces, or did just the neck or bottom crack off it or something?

    Yeah it kind of split in half on a diagonal from tip to bottom.I inspected the glass thickness...but I know I was leaving no headroom what so ever....so the last ten or so bottles have a couple of small air bubbles in them....I'm hoping the fridge fixes the rest.....but overall for my first batch....I'm happy with the outcome.....

    Yep, sounds like a hairline crack or an air bubble in the wrong spot then. If it's in the side where it meets the base or the shoulder it can elongate into something that makes it weaker.
