Hey everyone, I apologize if this question has been asked before but I tried searching for this and could not find any information.

Are the founders bottles reusable with a standard red wing capper? i would not think so because they have a thread around them, but they are not a twist off (I tried twisting it off knowing that they were a threaded bottle but could not).

Thanks for your help, really dont want to have to recycle all my breakfast stout bottles i have accumulated...

Cheers!

I have used twist offs, but the cap has to be level and crimped down - just check by turning the bottle upside down after capping

Instead of buying a pack of breakfast stout, go get a case of empty bottles from your homebrew store.
