Jym...if you have a recycle center close by, see if they will save you the Krolch bottles. They save money on capping and you can use the washers until they get stiff. Also the liter soda bottles work great if you are going to throw a party...once you open them you need to consume all of the beer, otherwise it will go flat.



just make sure everything is clean and you will be enjoying the best beer you have ever had.






I wonder if the washer are anything like hose washers. I bet you could replace them when they are worn out and keep using the bottles.

I do most of the cleaning my self, which is a lot by the way, but I buy the new one’s empty from brewing site’s, such as Northern Brewer, mr. beer, as well as a couple others that sell un’used bottles as well as the beer making ingredients. I keep my brew’s in the basement, where it’s nice n’ cool & dry.

by the way, I sometimes bottle my belgian beer in 750ml bottle’s made specially for belgian beer’s, since the old time brewer’s in belgian used to bottle their beer’s in 750ml bottl’s.

This is going to be a good teaching tool for me as I start to learn this. I will start trying to get the Grolsch bottles.

Those rubber washers are available from Northern Brewers. You just don’t have to replace them as often as you think.



Bigger is better in this case because it cuts down on the cleaning.



I also like the 22oz. bottles. When my wife asks me how many I’ve had, I can honestly say only two.



Homebrew makes you mellow...urp, right Moose?

Jym...here is something you can use and you will have helped the planet by recycling....old refrigerators make great insulating chambers to store your carboys to prevent the temperature from going haywire. Mine are in a place I can hose the inside out in case the fermentation gets a little wild.

After this election is over there will be a great deal more beer consumption. And I thought our leaders were driving people to drink more already.



I am glad I am learning to brew my own.
