Just bottled my hefe weizen in recycled erdinger bottles. A friend of mine saves them for me from his restaurant!!. I wash them and sanitize them, but I have a very dificult time trying to cap them, I have the red baron capper and regular caps. Is there a special bell or caps for this bottles?

Thanks

I think your best option is to use a bench capper. I have used the same style of bottle with success using standard caps and the bench capper.
