1 what kind of capper will cork and do everything, cap etc.
2 any other ideas for large brewing glassware,
3 what about the screw on lid growlers are these any different as far as pressure is concerned and bottling. also can a cork a cap style champagne bottle im still confused.
thanx guys as always, really helpful
1) Not sure about the best all around capper / corker, but I like my red baron double lever cappers. They're easy to find, accept both sizes of bells, and have reversible grippers with 26mm on one side and 29mm on the other. Some of the dogfish head brews come in a champagne style bottle that requires the 26mm bell, but the 29mm grippers.
3) Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's the thin wall glass of the growler and not the lid type that makes it unsuitable for carbonating pressures.
