Yes! You could open up an ebay store (I'd be your 1st customer) and sell those!

Maybe I should start exporting them to the rest of the world!

Hah, the postage fees would cost more than the product!

i end up putting in a can of frozen concentrate prior to serving to sweeten it up and add a bit more apple flavor.

Where are you shipping from?

I am happy to pay a bit up front for shipping if I simply cannot source the product with ease :-)

I'm thinking these caps can go via padded envelope?

But yah once you reach a certain gram weight, shipping does sky rocket!

Yes! This was my thinking as well.

See my location : Helsinki.

Here's some quick math.

You need 25 wine bottles to bottle a 5 gallon batch.

Those 10 packs of rubber caps might be found for about 2.50 - 3 EUR. So, three packs of rubber sima caps comes to between 7.50 and 9 EUR.

If the letter is max 3cm thick, then it's the lowest postage. If I can manage to squeeze them almost flat into a stiff envelope (which costs about 2 EUR from the post office), the postage is the cheapest - either 9 EUR (max 250g) or 13.50 EUR (251-500g). Padded envelope would go past 3cm thick and then the fee becomes 3 or 4 times more.

And I'd need 10 EUR just for taking the time to do all of that. So in the end, those rubber caps end up costing you 1 EUR each - 30 EUR total. Is that worth it to you?

Sent you a private msg. These caps are VERY useful. I have no frigging idea why something like this isn't immediately available in Canada and the U.S.
These appear reusable too.

I want to make no more than a gallon of carbonated sima or similar.

10 caps would be very useful. I've bought crazier things off ebay for more money.

I'd totally buy one pack of 10 from you!

You're not buying them from me, I'd be doing you a service of going shopping for you and shipping them to you.

A single ten-pack is still going to run you 24 EUR in the end, that's 34 CAD. And I don't have an Ebay store, nor am I going to start one. Paypal in advance and I'll get them out to you after the paypal has cleared to my bank account (about 1 week).

Only a little bit more expensive to get 3 ten-packs, then you can do an entire 20 litre batch. But whatever. If you want some sima caps, then I'll send you my paypal address.

No. I realize I misread the amt for the ten pack. Sorry for the trouble.
