Since i have had 1 outta of ever 6 bottle uses go uncarbed with a good amount of time and brand new seal also occasionally i get 2 or 3 that dont get a good enough carbonation to my liking
I was actually thinking on experimenting with Food Grade greases or oils on the gaskets because when i work on my motorcycles if you didn't lube up the gasket before you put it in you just screwed up the whole bikes function for creating a vacuumed chamber making a mess of things...soo i got the idea of using a very small amount of mineral oil to increase contact with the lip of the bottle and the FDA approved Mineral oil is perfectly safe i use it for my kitchen knives. and if you use a small enough of oil it wont get into the beer to affect head rentention and it is odorless and doesnt go rancid for long storage and when you pop one open just wipe the lip of the bottle but i will put a post up in a month to show a comparison i and i can throw you a message if it works out i hope then i can guarantee a carbed beer everytime cause i dont usually use many 32oz bottles max 6 per batch
That would be GREAT man. I only use 1L bottles since they were given to me as a gift. I'm building my stash of 12 oz. (its fun to drink beer to allow for the storage of beer)
I'm going to be getting a keggerator in the very near future from the family for the b-day. (parents' friend owns a pool hall and has some connections. So, should be a nice one)
I have all my beers sitting in the fridge right now and I left 4 bottles in the closet and am rotating them to keep the yeast in suspension for the next week or two and then I'll compare to see if it just takes a lot longer for the beer to carb in the larger sized containers.
