Great idea, totally going to do this. Probably will use Sam Light, just so I can at least keep the empty bottles, when Im done.

Wow, this is seriously amazing! As someone who is new to developing recipes and with the large number of hop varieties out there, this could be invaluable information.

Thanks for sharing.

I saw this on reddit. The guy who runs the Bertus blog does a GREAT job... I am proud to link to him. Another top notch post, the tasting notes were excellent.

I want to try this but how do you successfully recap on a twist off bottle?

Bench capper. Or find non-twist bottles.

Im gonna get the cheapest pry off bottles I can find (sam light?) and just use my capper to recap them. I guess you could try using a capper on the twist off bottle, its is doable.

I've (accidentally) capped twist-offs with homebrew (need to not drink so much) and they worked just fine. It really surprised me, but I have no doubt they would work for the few days for this.
