Belgian bottles
« on: November 23, 2016, 09:23:58 AM »
Got myself some Belgian bottles 750ml, corks and caps.

Plan is to brew a Bière de Garde with German lager yeast (Carlsberg type) and lager the bottles in my garage all winter.

Now I need to buy a good floor corker.

Where did you get everything?

I asked noble Grape if they could special order the items for me and they said they couldn't. So the only place online I found is:  http://homebrewsupplies.ca/

...expensive and the bottles are shipping at your own risk!

The items arrived quickly, well packaged and without any damages to the bottles.

I ordered only 1 dozen of bottles because I already have many empty ones at home.

I'm pretty sure you can get dirty Belgian bottles at the redemption centre for 0.50 a piece.

Nice! I know Noble Grape will rent a floor corker to you for $3 or something like that

Don't bother renting one from noble grape. You can rent mine for a beer...  ;)
