Default Grolsch bottles?

Does anyone reuse Grolsch bottles? I wanted to use them but when I filled them with water I turned them upside down and shook them,when I did that I could feel the water coming out in little sprinkles. Any suggestions?

I use grolsch bottles, but i am not sure i understand your question. Are you saying that they when you seal them up (with a rubber gasket on the cap) that it is allowing liquid to exit the bottle? I have never seen that.

The rubber gaskets are replaceable. Maybe those are worn out?

I used some in my first attempt at brewing with Mr. Beer years ago. They worked fine but I don't recall any leaking.

The rubber gaskets become dry and cracked over time. You should be able to get replacements at your LHBS. Use them! They are very convenient if you can get your hands on enough.

I wouldn't age anything more than about six months in these. And that's more for the rubber gaskets then anything. The gaskets might start retaining the aromas from the beverage inside.

Could be two things.

1- Pressure. With no carbonation pushing on the cap, it could be loose and sliding around.

2- water outside the bottle was what was dripping.
