Crown Top Bottles
This is my favourite brewing bottle because you get two glasses per bottle to a standard beer glass. Crown top bottles are also much more reliable at retaining carbonation.
Made from amber glass to prevent light strike and protect the flavour and aroma characteristics of your brew.
I find that I use 24-26 bottles for a standard brew (23l). This will be less if your crash cool prior to bottling normally down to 24 bottles for a standard brew and will also depend how you are bottling. I rack off into a bottling bucket. If you a bottling direct from the fermenter you may get one or two more if you are willing to go down to the last drop.
Russell’s brewing tips: Keep the boxes the bottle come in. They’re great for storing your bottled beer in until your ready to drink each bottle.
