Thanks for posting about this overflo. 

Frantisek asked me and others about how to best handle this in the future.  

That the bottle was in the hot sun was a problem.  So, one thing that will happen in the future is: there will be a very noticeable sticker on each bottle about not putting a sealed bottle in a warm place or in sunlight.  

Also, Frantisek us looking into bottles with caps that can release pressure when it gets too high.
