Buy the right gaskets for your bottles.
They aren't that expensive and they work the way they are intended.
You can get a pack of 100 for about the same price as crown caps.
I know you are thinking..."Hey, I only have 13 bottles, why do I need a hundred gaskets????"
Trust me, you will be getting more bottles in the future.
Once you buy a few...then you want more...then you want even more...etc.
That's why I have 13 cases of Grolsch bottles.
