Default Another reason to brew your own...

is that you'll never find broken glass in the bottom of your cases.

I'm still waiting for my first batch to ferment and I need bottles, so I figured I'd pick up a 12 pack of something I've never tried. I found a variety of Dundee (Rochester, NY) at my local grocery and figured I'd give it a try. As I'm unpacking the box I find a bunch of broken glass at the bottom. I had 12 intact bottling, but somewhere during the bottling process some broken glass got put in there. A corner of a piece even managed to poke it's way out the bottom edge. Luckily, I didn't get cut. Makes me wonder if any got in the bottles. Anyways, just another reason to brew your own.

Wow you would think they would have some sort of quality control that would catch that sort of thing.

The real kicker is that the caps are twist off. I can't even save the bottles!!

Yeah, yeah. I'm suffering with a wing capper. How does a bench capper work on twist offs: more downward pressure?

Woah.. that's a pretty serious quality control issue. I'd imagine Dundee would definitely want to know if something like this happened.. it would probably be worth giving them a call or sending them an email.
