I have a 64 oz growler with a ceramic swing top that has chips in the ceramic. - Perhaps from extensive use in getting to the beer. -

Would anyone have an idea of where a person could find replacement parts for these 64 oz growlers?

Thank you

If you can't find it at your LHBS, how about sacrificing a Grolsch bottle?
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 sauerkraut
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"

There are a couple places (Northern brewer & AHB) that carry the large growler gaskets and replacement tops for the smaller bottles, but I haven't seen the large tops anywhere.

Maybe some Bondo & a little sculpting?

You can try here:


Or contact Crosby & Baker to locate a retailer.
Planning: Ned's Red (Flanders style)
Primary: Niet
Secondary 1: Cripple Kriek (a 'pseudo' cherry lambic)
Secondary 2: Monk's Tripel...
Bottled: Dark Star Brown Ale, Watership Stout, Yet to be named cider

Well... a person can work up a mean, mean thirst after a hard day of nothing much at all.

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

You could try filling in the chips with an epoxy product like JB Weld. it would look a little funny but it would seal properly once again.
