This may sound painfully obvious, but many people do not realize...


...the 1 gallon point on a 1 gallon, glass jug is exactly where the raised letters are that are printed "ONE GALLON" and NOT up the neck, at all. This is a mark, not a label.


See?




Like I said, this MAY be painfully obvious!

A #6 stopper will fit the jug and I'd recommend getting a couple un-drilled ones for aerating your wort by shaking the jug stoppered. This is how I make my starters.

The amber jug looks like an acid bottle and that would be comparable to the clear one I have. If the words "ONE GALLON" are stamped into the bottle, it's a dead giveaway that it's a marker.


The bottle on the right looks like a Gallo (or somesuch) gallon wine jug and those will measure up to the neck due to preventing headspace.


You can always use a measuring cup to find out and report back to us!

i already have. they both run to the neck

as an aside the brown/amber is an old soda syrup bottle circa 1950's
there's a salvage company nearby that has 10-15 cases of em (sixers)
