Bottle weight

Postby Sparrow » Sun Jul 14, 2019 4:39 pm

I'm a bottler and I happened to have made an interesting (to me) discovery. Bottle weights vary and us bottlers might do well to weigh them and reuse only the heavy weights. My fav is the brown Guinness draught "harp" bottle. They weigh in at 8oz which along with the taper overcome (in my mind) any downside to the 11.2 oz euro standard. That just means they are even heavier oz for oz than those used by most American brewers. That is all.
