Homemade Ceramic Bottles
 
This is my first post but I have been reading the threads for a while and getting great information. I wanted to share these ceramic bottles I made and bottled a portion of my first batch of beer in them. Hopefully they work out and have a good enough seal to hold carbonation. Any thoughts or ideas? I will update after the bottles have time to carb and see if they work.

Most excellent! If (when) they work out, these would be AWESOME to age and serve some barley wine out of.........Just say'n! Classy!

Are you pressure testing them? I'd hate to have such cool handmade bottles act like growlers and not be able to contain the pressure of carbonation.

They're spectacular though. :mug:

Wow!
Not being a potter..how do you ensure the inside of the bottles get fully glazed, in order to be sanitized?

Do you just pour glaze in, swirl a bunch, hope for the best and inspect after the second firing?

Let us know how they work!

I really like the first and third ones! Would be sweet to roll up to a party pouring your homebrew from one of them! Be afraid someone would break it tho...

Really cool man, hopefully they hold. Did you slip the inside or something?
