why 16oz short neck
I store bottled beer in the "Conditioning" phase along the coldest wall in basement in Milk crates. Easy to handel the bottles / bottles fit the internal height of the crate / crates can be stacked as high as you can lift the crates are very stable/ lots of free flowing air space.
Five gallon batch = 38+/- bottles / 16 bottles to the crate.

Don't cap reliably - don't buy
I have 5 cases of these bottles. When I first bought I noticed that I could, with some effort, turn the cap on the bottle after it was crimped. I contacted NB and they said it was OK. I used the bottles for a while and they seemed OK. I bought some more. Everything seemed fine.

Most recently I made two batches of beer and bottled most of it in these 16oz'er. I'm using the same bench capper I always use. I'm finding at least 30% of the bottles are not tight. If I lay the bottles on their sides they actually DRIP. Another 10% don't drip, but don't hold pressure well enough to carb.

I think the problem is that the mouth of the bottle, where the cap grips, is noticeably smoother than a regular bottle, and the caps just don't bite well enough. Maybe it was the caps I was using, but those same caps work perfectly on regular bottles. I don't plan on risking another batch with these bottles; they'll probably end up in the recycling.

Don't risk it.

Response from Northern Brewer
Thanks for the review. We were concerned by your review and did some thorough testing with a number of different cappers and caps. We had a much higher level of success with the bottles and could not produce a spinning cap or leak. Customer Service will be in touch though, to see if we can help find the reason for your troubles. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Cheers, Todd J, 1-800-681-2739

How much carbonation can these handle?
Anthony M on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The cartons that the bottles come in do not specify. Based on my experience, these are medium weight bottles: not the heaviest and not the thinnest.

For comparison:

The weight of these bottles (16oz size): 342.6 gm or 12.1 oz.
The weight of Heineken bottles (12oz size): 190.6 gm or 6.7oz.

Champagne is from 70-90 psi or 5-6 atmospheres. I have made champagne and sparkling cider in bottles like these without a problem, but if you are concerned about pressure, use heavier bottles or champagne bottles.

Please wait...
