Default New Flip Tops

I have found a potential suppler in Australia.
I am in the testing stage and will report back when i have tested the beer.
The problem is that i need to buy 1000 pieces at one time
has anyone seen an American suppler of these items?

What sort of number are you looking at ?

They come up on the UK Ebay fairly often

Oh, those are neat. I could never use 1000 but maybe my LBHS could use 1000. Am I right in assuming that those can be used on almost any bottle. It looks so simple. If I can get some, I plan to go champagne bottle scooting on New Years.

These should not be used with wine bottles as they are not strong enough.
The plastic collar does come with them and is easy to put on and take off

They do not work with beer bottles

Yeah, those look great! I would be willing to split an order, depending on the cost.

So they don't work with beer bottles and they dont work with wine bottles. What are they good for?

You use them on champagne bottle because the bottles can take pressure. the beer bottle has a small lip and these new ones dont work with theim

My thinking is that i like big bottles and I like the idea of no capping
I have 6 kegs and a kegerator but for travling and visiting i like to take bottle

You can buy fliptop bottles but the price is up there.
I would rather buy another bag of two row.
