polyseal caps?



They are what I use for 1/2 and full gallon growlers. They hold pressure great.
Those are what I use as well.

The local brewpub distributes growlers that are pre-filled and stored. They don't fill growlers but rather exchange them for the customers. They are regular screw-top ones.

+1... This is how I fill 'em at the bar and at home.

My local brewery fills growlers all the time. They just fill them up till theres no airspace in the top. They last at least a few days in the fridge. (maybe more, but I don't know because they're empty by then)
