Twist off caps

by Alberta Rager

Twist-off Bottles & Twist-off Caps

Twist-of bottles are made to be capped with a completely different type capper than is available to homebrewers.  They are generally made of a much thinner glass than the pry off bottles.  When using twist-off bottles with a home capper, some of the bottles may not seal properly resulting in flat or poorly carbonated beer.  Therefore, twist-off bottles should only be used in an emergency.

 Twist-off caps which have the arrow showing which way to twist are made of a thinner medal than pry-off caps.  They will still seal a pry off bottle properly with on loss of carbonation.  But, they won’t twist off.  So, it’s fine to use them.
