I bottled the batch of brown ale I made quite a few are nice and carbonated great flavor but I noticed that some are still these beers are in bottles that have chipped caps.

Should I try and drink the still beers or is there a chance they could be contaminated?

Do any of you know if someone can buy these Grolsch stoppers when they have some that are chipped?

Thanks Ed just what i was looking for.

Now i hope there isn't many that are still like that.

I'm afraid to drink them.

Most any 'good' LHBS will carry these.

I say try them and see. What can happen?

+1 - open one and take a sniff and sip - if they taste fine and you can't do the still beer try half and half with a carb'd one.
