Biogas Safety, storing and processing

Hey all!

I'm prepering to build my biogas producing unit.
I think I got the hang of producing biogas. there're a lot of videos on the matter

I am having more difficulty with the storage and cleaning process.
As from what I understand I can store it either inside an upside down floating container method or in tubes.

I couldn't find anything about the safety of those methods.

I like the inner tube method because it's more compact but it looks like I need to fill the inner tube then disconnect the tube and reconnect to gas + I'm scared it'll blow up.

The upside-down container seems better because (from what I understand) I don't need to disconnect in order to store the gas. also, it's going trough water so it saves me building a separate water filter.
But again : safety- what happened if it get filled to maximum and I'm not around? on video says it'll tip over when too fool but since I'm doing it at home it's not much comfort..

Also, if anyone got information on how to process it to make it clean and if it's even necessary, as well as information about which stove would work with it.

Than you !
