Details

The Amber 1/2 gallon glass jug is perfect for making a large yeast starter, experimenting with fruit flavors in your wine or beer, or for storing sanitizer solution. Takes a #6 stopper or a 38 mm screw cap depending on what your needs are.

Also, a great way to tote your homebrew! Just fill directly from your tap if you have a draft system. To reduce foaming attach a short piece of hose to the end of your faucet to direct beer to the bottom of the growler. Midwest does not recommend priming beer in these growlers. They are not made to withstand that kind of pressure.

Note: Stopper, or screw cap, is not included.

Perfect to bottle from the keg
I got these along with my kegging system so I could maintain some portability. I am very happy with them. The price is right and they hold carbonation very well. There is something awesome about coming to someone's house with growlers full of beer also.

Protects your beer from skunking
The amber glass is superior to blue or green for protecting your beer from UV light. The bottle looks cool with the little handle too.

Portable Beer for Keggers
These are a great size for bringing kegged homebrew to share when you don't want to bring the whole set-up. The amber glass on these bottles helps prevent oxidation over other colors as well.

Great for yeast starters
Use this jug with the 35-45mm foam stopper, and it makes an excellent yeast starter bottle. If used as a starter bottle, I suggest that you add a magnetic stir bar with a stir plate to maximize your cell counts.

Bring your kegged beer with you
I find these to be the quickest, easiest way to bring my Kegged Home brew to family gatherings, parties, or just to a friends house. Use over and over again, easy keep clean.

Good for small batches, too.
In addition to their value as a growler, these half-gallon bottles work great for primary fermentation of small batches, particularly craft batches of fruit-based alcohol where you may not have enough fresh fruit to do the entire gallon. This makes it great for things like cider, raspberry wine or cordials. Just don't carbonated in here - the blurb warns the bottles could explode. Brown glass keeps out the UV rays and looks great on a shelf.

Great for starters, growler
These are great for making large starters or for a cheap, short term use growler for your homebrew. These are also great for doing experiments, like trying out different dry-hopping additions.

Standard growler
This is the standard growler. w ks great for yeast starters and for pouring to go beer off the tap at home. I it's best to use a tube from the faucet to go to the bottom of these when filling to reduce foam. you can also lower the serving pressure a bit. I also like to use the 38mm poly seal caps to seal.
