I just poured some soda in a beer bottle with a twist off (miller light) and pressure tested it and it held. I soaped the sides and no co2 leak. I capped it with that red plastic hand capper that came originally with my beer kit from back in the days. I ordered the colonna bench capper a week ago, and it should be here soon. Does the colonna bench capper do a better job than my plastic hand capper at capping twist off's?
I also bought 2 cases totalling $39.10 of samuel adams boston lager for bottling my pumpkin beer. I figure that the bottles are already sanitized, clean, and all i would have to do is pop the caps, pour out the beer, rinse and bottle my beer. Pretty easy huh. I wish bottles already came ready to bottle. I know i could of ordered 2 cases of bottles but that would of cost me about $28 plus shipping here to guam, but for $39 there ready to go, no cleaning or sanitizing and saving me about 2 hours on bottling day. Id say thats quite a deal. Tell me what you guys think
