I just acquired ~70 used flip tops. Most are in pretty good shape. At least a third are old ,5l German bottles. The wire baskets for some have varying degrees of patina and rust. I assume they're fine since they'll be thoroughly sanitized and the beer doesn't touch the wire. However I figure I'd put it out there and see what you all think. At what point do you all decide a bottle has reached retirement?
Primary: Gunslinger's Graff
Bottled: American Rye, Chuffed (Sorachi Ace Single Hop Common Ale)
