  1. I have a batch of Novocaine bottled at the end of December into PET Oxygen barrier bottles. Almost all the bottles in the batch are firm but this particular bottle is soft. If I squeeze the bottle, I hear a hiss of air coming out through the cap. At this point, what should I do? Put a new cap on it? Transfer it to a different bottle? Put some more carbo drops in too? Refrigerate and drink flat? Toss?
  2. I have a bunch of 500ml Hacker-Pschorr flip top bottles lying around. Has anyone used them for bottling before? Do they seal well? How often should I replace the seals? B.
  3. I am going to bottle my first batch of Mr Beer tomorrow. I have the 750 o2 Pet Bottles. The recipe was Horses Ass First Question what is the difference between the regular pet bottles and the O2 barrier bottles? Becuase I am thinking about buying more so I can run another Batch. Second Question I saw someone on youtube Bottle his beer and he squeezed the bottle to remove the air is this correct way with the pet bottles? Third Question in a 750 ML Pet O2 bottle it says 2 conditioning tablets per bottle to carbonate. I have honey as my sugar in my batch, Is it ok to add a drop with the conditioning tablets to add flavor ? and do you condition every recipe at 68-76 degrees? Thanks for any help Norman Sands
  4. So I just finished my first batch of American light, and bottled it in the 740ml plastic amber bottles it came with(put 2carbo drops in each bottle). Now I need more bottles, I am going to Amazon and notice I have 2 options... Amber or Clear? Does this make a difference? Right now I have my conditioning beer bottles in a dark cabinet at room temperature. So does this affect the beer in any way? Thank you
  5. Hello, I am a new brewer and very excited to get started. My first batch is just about done fermenting. Probably about 2-3 days left in the Keg fermenter. I have a basic Mr Beer 2 gallon keg fermenter, and this batch is the American light. I tasted a sip and it has just a little hint of sweetness, but tastes good! So just a little time to go! I also have a 2nd batch I just made 2 days ago, Czech Pilsner with the same kit in a 2nd fermenter. So if bottling with mason jars works well I will try again. -To carbonate the beer I want to use 1QT Mason Jars. I am going to add 3 Coopers Carbonation-Drops to each jar. These use a screw on lid, and they are reusable, and glass. -So is this acceptable for carbonating? -How long does it take to carbonate 1QT jars? Thank you

    Ready to bottle?

    I have been fermenting "Black Moon Rising" recipe for three weeks. According to the recipe this should finish at 7.1% ABV. When I brewed it, my hydrometer was broken so I couldn't take an initial so.gr. measurement. I got a new hydrometer and today, after three weeks of fermenting, the sp.gr. reading was 1.022. This seems high still. Should I give it more time or bottle?
