Salmanazar
« on: January 24, 2013, 10:57:32 AM »
That got your attention? Supposedly that is the name of the 9 litre champagne bottle that I have and want to put some beer in. I have a way to get the cork in but the standard 750ml crown and cage is way to small it. Does anyone know where I can get the appropriately sized crown and cage?

Thanks.

You may have to just get some baling wire, and tie one yourself.

Oh, he's good at tying one on.
What are you putting in it?

Maybe a crown cap for a crown?
I think the cage on my Ommegang jeroboam is standard. The rim is big, but they might just open it up and have fewer twists in the tie. I'd try that first.

Maybe it'll take a standard sized stopper, like an 8 or 10?

I am probably going to put my Saison d'Hiver (thanks Drew) in it. I brewed 10 gallons of that. I have a friend going to a wine industry show this week and he is going to look there for me. If he doesn't have any luck - bailing wire it is.

And this one takes a champage cork. It is bigger than the normal 750ml sized Belgian cork.
