Default beer time capsule

after grandpa passed away we found his malt liquor recipe, his old stone crock, rusted bottle capper, and even a box of decades old caps (with cork inside the top to seal against the bottle). we followed his recipe and used all of his old supplies, which had probably been sitting in his garage for longer than i've been alive. yesterday we bottled 5 gallons, and it occurred to me that these are essentially like beer time capsules. the date: 1950, the place: south dakota. i cant wait to crack one open and taste what he was drinking with the brothers in his fraternity.

Very cool--I scored a box of those exact same caps a few years ago, they're just sitting on my shelf. Cheers to you for using them!

Neat. I'd love to find an old crock fermenter one of these days.

they're great. we've got two-six gallon crocks, one-three gallon crock, and one-fifteen gallon crock. we use the sixes and three as primary fermenters continually (boy do they get heavy). i'm going to try the 15 next month. its a little odd because it has a hole for an old wooden spigot. i've been uncomfortable deciding whether i could ever actually get the thing sanitized, but finally decided, hey, if people can sanitize wood barrels, why not this.

we HAD a 12 gallon and 30 gallon that were the greatest things known to man, but this is what we found when we opened the moving boxes in april.
