Has anybody used 1/2 Gallon bottles with screw top lids? Do the screw tops seal well enough? In the past i have used small bottles with regular caps. I am still kind of new. I am on my 4th batch. Thanks !!!
If you're talking about the 1/2 gallon growlers with plastic screwtops, they won't hold a seal for the carbonation... They're good for making starters though
Thanks! I guess its back to the pounders.
You could use 1,2 or 3 liter soda bottles. Just keep the beer out of the light.
I used these plastic tops on my half gallon and my 1 gallon growlers and I have no problem holding carbonation.http://www.homebrewadventures.com/shopping/index.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=homebrew&Product_C ode=SC-38-PP
Thank You All!!! You have been a big help!!!
I just went to the LHBS and grabbed a $0.25 cap and it, in my opinion, worked better than the metal one that came with it.
