Default The Amazing, new speed bottling technique

The Amazing, new 'speed bottling technique' !


Gentlemen, beer and ale must be either bottled or kegged.
Think of all the different size beer bottles you have seen in your life.
One day I will be set up to keg a whole batch, 5 gallons.
Like in one big bottle.
On the other hand however
12 oz bottles while optimum from the user standpoint,
are way slow to bottle!
'50 bottles' can be reduced by half by using 22 oz bottles
as I proved the other night bottling up my first batch
of the cool, weather brewing season.
22-24 bottles are half as easy to wash, sanitize, rinse, fill, cap, and retire to the brewery, as 50!

To take this truth further,
I drink beer and ale.
There's no denying it.
I mean a gallon a day is a bit much but 9-10 beers is not unusual.
I mean I am the boss!
In other words what I need is bigger bottles.
Is there a 33 oz 44 oz 55 oz bottle?
A half gallon jug with 'a hole' the size of a beer bottle?
A quarter gallon?

Boys, this is what we need!
If one doesn't exist, lets make one!
A bottle which would last me for my entire 'before dinner drunk'.
Or a 'watch a movie drunk'.
A little one for the 'after coffee drunk', a 22 oz'er is perfect here.
An after dinner drunk!
The 'great bigg-un', half a gallon'er, at 65 oz's !
See?

I think, I am really onto something here !
Big bottles would reduce bottling time,
by, however big the bottles are.
5 gallons...
12 oz'ers 46 bottles !!!
22 oz'ers 22-24.
44 oz'ers 11-12!
88 oz'ers 5-6 bottles to fill!
Hell! That would be done in...
well, see, I'm already done!
Faster and cheaper than bottling or kegging!

Is that cool or what?

You could bottle in 2L growlers. Eight to ten bottles and you'd be done.

Flying lion dude,

I called up old Andy at the 'HomeBrewHeadquarters'
{N. Dallas}
and asked him about growlers.
Bingo!
He has different sizes of 'big bottles'.
With screw caps and he said they were alright.
And I think about the 2,000 12 oz bottles I bottled last year.
They look good on the shelf in the brewery.
I was trying for a record 1,000 bottles of
"ale that don't taste too bad",
and have them all in the same place and at the same time,
for documenting them photographically,
and came close.
But hell,
I missed a lot of coon hunting.

A miracle!
I can put up a batch in...
its already done.
Dern, that was fast!

See, I can spend more time brewing.
More time drinking!
Thanks for the info.
I have been going in there for 10 years and never knew about a growler.
Still have no idea what they will look like,
but bigger bottles= faster bottling.

A guy at work told me he found 1-liter flip-top style bottles at IKEA for 2 bucks. I don't know if they were clear or brown, but if you have an IKEA close by, it might be worth a look.

Homebrew HQ normally has used growlers for about 1.50. Every time I see em there I buy em out. Think half gallon jug with a screw on lid.

The original post seemed like poetry, so in response, a haiku...
