Carta Blanca quart size bottles
« on: August 18, 2010, 04:38:25 pm »
Are these a good idea to use?  They're brown and 32oz, look like they'd make great mini-growlers for bottling homebrew.  Do they use a standard cap like Sam Adams bottles do?

Buy one and try it.  My concern is that the emily clapper might not fit around the neck, since the bottle is fat on the bottom and skinny on top.  What you can try is pulling out the metal tabs on the emily clapper (bottler) and reversing them.  When you reverse them you can cap champagne bottles.
