Yeah but beer already bottled commercially is sterilized. I have a keg, but I like to bottle and have a few every once in a while. I only keg for party's. Im a Marine, Its 86 degrees all year long, and I eat malaria for breakfast!!!

Since 1992 (1st year brewing), not one problem.

My cappers cap really tight, I'm guessing some bench cappers cap tighter than others. It's hard to get the twistoff's off by hand.

I just poured some soda in a beer bottle with a twist off (miller light) and pressure tested it and it held. I soaped the sides and no co2 leak. I capped it with that red plastic hand capper that came originally with my beer kit from back in the days. I ordered the colonna bench capper a week ago, and it should be here soon. Does the colonna bench capper do a better job than my plastic hand capper at capping twist off's?

I also bought 2 cases totalling $39.10 of samuel adams boston lager for bottling my pumpkin beer. I figure that the bottles are already sanitized, clean, and all i would have to do is pop the caps, pour out the beer, rinse and bottle my beer. Pretty easy huh. I wish bottles already came ready to bottle. I know i could of ordered 2 cases of bottles but that would of cost me about $28 plus shipping here to guam, but for $39 there ready to go, no cleaning or sanitizing and saving me about 2 hours on bottling day. Id say thats quite a deal. Tell me what you guys think
