I learned this by surprise, driving on rough dirt roads bad enough to upend the box containing beer and busting a can open will set off your propane detector!

Passing this tidbit along in case this ever happens to you. I can't imagine beer alochol vapor-in-air percentage ever reaching a stochimetric explosive point; but now you know the detectors are there to protect us! (At least, they provide warning of splilt beer!)

I mostly agree, I’ve always tried to avoid IPA, that is until my boy introduced me to Oregon based Deshutes Fuzz - I can’t say exactly why but very refreshing with a bold taste - now my ‘go to’ favorite 🙂

If the detector were set to go off when the mix was stoichiometric, it would be too late. Any spark and BOOM!

That said NOBODY likes IPA. I've watched people take a sip. Their faces turn red and their cheeks bulge as they try to hold back the gag reflex. Their throats quiver and their eyes water as they force themselves to swallow. Only when it's safely contained in their stomach do they allow themselves to take a breath, exhaling with a boisterous "AHHHHH! DEEEE-LICIOUS!"

This particular beer was Miller Light. (watered down compared to many others) (I don't like IPAs or Stout, my preference would be Tetley's which as far as I know is only available near me on tap.) Boddington's would be next on the list but near impossible to find in cans for me....

The Propane gas detector did its job; for that I am thankfull! Hopefully I never hear it again!

Guess I need to keep the beer in the cab instead of the camper?
What could go wrong there?
