What was the final volume on that thing, Ace? Blowing out a Grolsch bottle is quite the good idea if you know how to do such a thing. Walls are probably thinner than normal though, right?

Final volume is noted on the bottom as 64 oz., although I haven't done a fill test yet. It isn't just a blown out Grolsch bottle, it's 100% blown from scratch. It is thick walled and pretty hefty (especially when compared to my Rock Bottom growler).

It's a very nice piece, I can't wait to give it a test run!

If anyone is interested, he's set up a website. You can check out the different kinds, purchase them, and even see videos of them being made.

Those are pretty cool. I'd like to see some multi colored glass though. Like red, blue, yellow, green all on one bottle. You know hippy type stuff.
