Stainless Steel Growler, I am interested. Any idea on the cost and is it a flip top?

The cap is not a flip top..the cap is a threaded stainless steel cap with an air tight seal! These growlers will start out in the mid $30's...

How much will it hold? There are some places selling stainless growlers already. With kegging I don't have any need to carbonate in a growler. Hard to say if I would use a stainless screw-top version much. Flip top bottles/growlers are easy to seal up FAST.

This growler will hold 64oz..
One nice thing about being a screw cap with an air tight seal is the the ability to either prime your beer in the growler naturally with priming sugar or fill with beer that has been already carbonated. This growler holds the carbonation for days..around the fifth day the beer starts to lose carbontation once the majority of the beer is emptied from the growler.

I like being able to see the level inside the growler/large bottle (I have some 1L swing top bottles too). I've also not had any issue with carbonation loss in a full swing top bottle. Besides, once these are opened, they tend to be emptied that day/evening so keeping it around isn't an issue.

This could be something more for people wanting to take home brew camping and such. I wouldn't 'naturally carbonate' for that case though, unless it's a brew you actually WANT to drink the sediment in. :p :drunk:

Looks cool, but the normal growlers screw top, or swing top will keep their carb levels for atleast a week in my experience if they are kept cool, and aren't shook to death after they have been opened.

Some people will want to carb in the growler, but at only being 64oz, you'd need 10 of those for a batch if you were to carb in them.

For that much money, you can get a full kegging setup. :eek:
