I have brewed and bottled three batches of beer using a mix of pry tops and twist off bottles. The first two batches worked great using the caps we had bought from Northern and MidWest brewing supply, this latest batch is Red Lager and was bottled five days ago.
I thought I had found a good deal on ebay on some gold top bottle caps.
Well, I guess you get what you pay for...
The pry top bottles sealed fine, but about seven out of ten of the screw top bottles, (Budweiser and Yuengling bottles), didn't seal.
I just got thru re-capping the leaking bottles with the last of the good silver caps.
What can I expect from the bottles (about 25) that have been recapped? I found a health food store about an hours drive from where I live that sells Beer brewing supplys, I'm going to go over ASAP and get some new caps (it looks like they get most of their stuff from MidWest) and recap the remaining gold capped twist-offs.
