    Step 1 Grab a beer bottle preferably with thick glass such as corona bottles. Tie a string just above the label on the empty bottle.

    Step 3 Put the string back on the bottle and hold it horizontally. Light the sting rotating the bottle so the flame spreads. You should hear the bottle crack slightly in about 10 seconds.

    I wonder if this would really work?

    It does work, but yields varied results. A lot of the time the edge is too jagged to attempt to fix. It works best if you have a glass cutter and can place an initial gouge where you want the lip of the glass to be. (Since glass is crystalline, the cut line will propagate into the material with the temperature change. Still, unlikely to be perfect.)
    Two ciders please, I'm thirsty!

    On deck: Soon Cider
    Fermenting: None
    bottled: Old and dusty something rathers
    Secondary: None
    Kegged: Carbonated Water (enjoying home made soda syrups)

    Interesting. The more I think about it, the glasses would be a bit too small for my liking. lol
