I've always hated saving commercial pop top bottles because I didn't like removing the labels. But, I tried some Maisels Weisse and liked their slightly slimmer bottles (11.2 FL. OZ.) so I decided I'd save them and try to remove the labels. I put them in the sink with the hottest water my sink...
Bottling day brings you even closer to your brewing goal of having your very own handcrafted beer to enjoy and share. Bottling can either be a pain or painless. Learning through the pain process I have a few ideas to share so your brewing day experience will be something to enjoy.
What you will...
Hi, new brewer here.
I am making a 4% coopers lager and when it came to bottling I noticed a light yellowish sort of colour (which smells pretty bad) when I reached the tap of my fermenting vessel (which I'm assuming is all the leftover yeast. Which people tend to throw out or to re-use).
Haven't bottled in years since I started kegging. Cleaning out my basement in preparation to move and have several cases of bottles:
Four cases of 12oz bottles (96 bottles total)
Three cases of 22oz and 750ml bottles (36 bottles total)
All are brown glass and are clean with no labels.
I've got an imperial chocolate stout in my fermenter and I'd love to bottle it in style. I'm really enamored with the distinctive shape of Samuel Smith's 355 ML bottles, and I'm wondering if it's possible to buy similar bottles anywhere. Of course I'm saving all the ones I drink but it's taking...
I'm pretty sure we all deal with the fact that the cardboard boxes our bottles come in fall apart sooner than the bottles that come in them. Is there a stackable, durable, presumably plastic or wooden, product for holding bottles while keeping them from hitting each other? Or what is your hack...
I'm downsizing and want to pass on some older brewing equipment to someone who needs it in Utah. Please check out my classified ad: https://classifieds.ksl.com/listing/57525584. I'd reduce the price even more for a quick sale.
From my last brew/bottling day I used Oxiclean to clean all my brewing equipment instead of PBW. This weekend I intend to bottle the batch that is fermenting right now, and while I was making sure I had everything ok, i noticed my bottle caper got rusted.
Do you guys recommend using it...
WTB some swing-tops, as I plan to brew a Belgian strong and need bottles that will withstand more than 3.0 volumes of carbonation. Need about 50 or so, but if you have more than that and the price is right I'll take them off your hands. Local Twin Cities area, will pick up.
I have been searching everywhere for them and only need 2 or so cases but i can not find them and the few places who i have found to have them want to sell me hundreds if not thousands of bottles. If anyone has information on this it would be much appreciated. I live in the lower 48 of the USA.
Hey everyone! I managed to get a few days off in a row, and a couple of my melomels are ready to bottle (I'm basing this on clarity and flavor).
I thought I'd throw them in 750ml punted clear bottles, but they're fairly hefty, and warm one's insides. I can't imagine going through that much...

I'm planning on brewing my first batch of mead (with strawberries).
I would love if it could be sparkling mead, but I have a couple of questions:
1. From what I've read, one must be careful about the type of bottle used for bottling. Does anybody know if a flip-top Grolsch beer bottle...

I would like to find some way to force carbonate bottles of beer rather than just a keg. I talked to my local beer making store and they said it would be nearly a 300 dollar investment to pull that off. Does anyone have any more cost effective ideas?
