newbie need advice

Recommended Posts

I am a newcomer and am brewing my second batch, HCCD + booster. It has fermented almost 3 weeks and is ready to bottle. I orderred a second set of PET bottles as my first brew is still conditioning. I opened the package today and found there were no bottle caps included. What will 4 weeks in the fermenter to the beer? Do you think I should move my fermenter to a cooler location while I wait several days for the caps to be shipped? Thanks

1. Do you have a local homebrewing store near you? They may have caps.

2. Get a 12 pack of 22 oz or 8 Liter bottles of Coke or Pepsi. You can bottle into those as well. Clean them with Oxy Clean Free to remove the soda smell.

3. You can probably wait the extra week, but I wouldn't leave it in the fermenting keg longer than 4 weeks.

Hope this helps

What orrwdd said.
Pretty much any cap that came off of a PET bottle will work. So drink up some Rum and Cokes and save the caps from the 12 oz to 2 lt Carbonated Beverages and sanitize and use.
