Hacker-Pschorr Flip-Top Bottle

Recommended Posts

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?

Off topic, but I haven't had a chance to say welcome to the forums, Blackhawk! :)

Yeah, they work good if well-maintained. I would recommend putting new gaskets in them, though. The gaskets can last for a long time if stored correctly. Always store the empty bottles with the lids open so it doesn't create wear on the gaskets. Keep them in a cool place when storing empty or full because the gaskets can dry out and crack in the heat. We sell the gaskets, but you need to call in to purchase them because they aren't on the website. They are $0.20 each.
