Please do more of this as we don’t all live in London! I also used to make ginger beer.

Many years ago, we were going to travel from Northampton to London on the train when we realised the ginger beer we were taking was way too fizzy. So we had to put it on the edge of the platform and release, retreating very quickly. It wasn’t going to explode as we were using Perrier bottles, but it sprayed spectacularly up under the station canopy. Sorry to the staff at Northampton station.
