Glass is not a valid flavor.

Some of my homebrew beer bottles with crimp-on tops broke when opened.

These same bottles were not carbonated properly, which seems strange that they didn't either break on capping or turn into bottle bombs.
This happened to both brand new, ordered bottles and re-used bottles with two different kinds of beer, and hadn't happened with previous batches. I did make a specific attempt to cap more tightly this time because last time a couple didn't carbonate properly, but didn't break either. What's the deal, and what can i do about it in the future? This
is the capper I use.
