I use a dumpster assortment of bottles. All 12 oz, but some weight double what others do. All OK.
I just now finished bottling a batch, in mixed bottles. I thought my bench tapper was broken for a second- the Arrogant Bastard Ale bottles must be a bit larger in diameter, it really took a lot of force to crimp the caps. Worked fine though.
Last batch I crushed one bottle. Not a ABA. Cracked maybe ? It was one I'd used s couple times...
So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had brewing....you don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?
72 batches so far,
48 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
23 beers and ciders
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"
