I came home last night and smelled JD in the room I have all my bottles. I found a JD + coke can leaking. It was about half full. CRAP!!! It leaked down the front of my shelves. I got lucky as everything cleaned up ok. I read a thread earlier about emptying all your cans and displaying them empty. Any thoughts? I have 8 other cans that I don't want to have suddenly start to leak. I think I am going to the store and look for some thin, clear drinking glasses and put each can inside each glass. I tried one last night and it fit great and looks pretty good to.

Just wondering what others are doing.

Yeah ..... there's a few of us that have had this problem.

I didn't really want to empty them as I like the fact they're full like the bottles so the cans I now have on display I have standing on bar mat to soak up any liquid if this should happen again.

The extra cans I have are packaged in sealed air-tight plastic bags then stored inside those black plastic country cocktail beakers.

I have only heard about this happening with the Jack & Cola cans from Germany, not the Jack & Dry, Jack & Lemonade, Citrus Jack etc.

It took me years to find a can of Citrus Jack so I sure wouldn't want to empty that one. I'd rather take the chance of it leaking.

You got me scared now wondering about my cans in storage. Did the can just start to leak out of the bottom or did the seal on top break?

Mine just started leaking on the bottom somewhere. I can't even find a crack or hole in it. But if I turn it back upright it starts leaking again, very, very slowly. Weird. Max, mine was a can from Germany also.

Thats a weird deal there. I used to Collect all the Harley beer cans I never had one leak for 10 years then I got a leaker. Most can collectors told me to poke a pin hole through the bottom and drain the can that way the can retains value and you have no leaks. UGH sorry to hear it went down your display

I also collect Coke .. and have a few cans... with all of the cans I have... only one has leaked so far... It was an Olympic can from Atlanta... so 1996..

I did not see any holes in it or anything... I put it in a bowl... and it sat there for about a month.. it did not leak any more.. so now I have a can 1/2 full of Coke with no clue as to how it happened...

Probably becomes leaking due to the stuff they use inside the cans to keep it consumable for human until the consuming date has past, it's a sort off film that's inside the cans.

I put all my remaining full cans inside clear glasses. They don't look bad inside the glasses and at least they won't leak on anything else.

Cheers,

Tom

Nope, this isn't a strange way to drink Jack. :) Ever since a few years ago I had a can leak, I put all of my full cans in a glass to prevent the leakage from making a mess. Well had another one leak today. So this is why I put them in glasses. No mess at all. Oddly enough the leak was 3/4 of the way up the can (right above the swing logo). The leakage point was too small to see, but shaking the can a little, the mixture bubbled out of the spot of the leak. Luckily I had a spare also.

Tom, check the date that the first one leaked above, if you get one leak every 10 years then it's not so bad !
