no difference then -- I fully intend these to have a flip top.

In other news, my RIS has grown into a beautiful beer... It turns out it wasn't spoiled at all -- it just needed some time to mellow.

I think they'd make really nice cider containers and painting a little apple on the side with glaze would be NICE!

The bottles are fired, I've got to make the casts...


the bottle seen in the pictures holds a little less than 16oz due to shrinkage -- which is a shame, and the jugs all hold near half gallons to near gallons (it's tough getting the volumes dead on) Pressure testing should come soon, but I gotta make the casts first, I'm currently moving back to school and I'm working on getting some kegging equipment together for one of my beers so I'ven't had much time to play with clay. :/ I'll keep this thread updated though -- no worries.
