Just brewed my second batch...a pumpkin spice ale, just in time for Thanksgiving.
I bottled this afternoon...51 12oz's. Problem is though that, with at least 17 of those or so, I can slightly turn the bottle cap (some just barely, others a lot). I've used many of these bottles on my first batch and I didn't have that problem before, but do now. Nearest I can figure is the caps weren't great..."Hooch Brewing" they say.
I can't pull the cap off, just twist it. The little rubber liner/o-ring thing is present in the caps. I turned some of the bottles with the most easily twistable caps upside down to see if they leaked beer. Beer is staying in just fine.
Problem is though I figure that gas can wiggle it's way out of the bottle easier than the beer, so I'm worried that my CO2 is going to escape as it's produced in those bottles.
Anyone have this problem before? If so how'd it turn out? Should I worry about these guys? If it were just a few I wouldn't care as much...but 17! That's quite a hit if they all turn out flat!
