Blown Head Gasket?

I'm pretty sure I have a blown head gasket but before I tear it down I want to make sure.

I keep puking coolant out the degauss bottle. Replaced the cap twice. One was bad out of the box. Still puking. Borrowed a radiator pressure tester. Found a clamp not holding so it would leak under pressure. Fixed it. Still puking coolant. Doesn't take long either. 10-15 miles normal driving. This morning I hooked the pressure tester back up and brake boosted it. I watched the pressure climb to about 12 PSI within seconds.

Tear down time?

Yup sounds like it ya could do the test strip thing to confirm combustion gas but pretty shure one or more head gaskets is in order, pray for just gaskets.
