Default Guinness Extra Stout Bottles

I have a case of Guinness Extra Stout Bottles that I'm in the process of emptying. I thought they be great to bottle into until I tried my capper on one of them and it had issues with it. The neck of these are slightly different--less space between bottle top and lip for the capper to grab. Is there a capper that will do these?

Which capper do you have? I have used this one to successfully bottle beer in Guniness ES bottles: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/produ...px?ProdID=4765

The capper I use looks exactly like that. But when I tried using on a Guinness ES bottle it snapped a bit too much at the capping position and required a bit too much pressure to remove.

I've used a wing capper for those and other weird bottles, but have had a much increased percentage of breaking the bottles. I recommend getting a bench capper if you can spend the money on it. It makes bottling much easier in general, and you don't have to worry about breaking any bottles, even the bottles with weird necks.

They sure do. But they are very easy to remove. I believe there is a thread about that as well.

i have the red wing-capper and found the guiness stout bottles tricky to cap, too. I don't use these bottles because I am just not sure of the seal as I am with other bottles.
