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.
I like the bottle just disappointed it didn't come with the caps. Now I'm trying to find 4 little caps that won't eat me alive on shipping charges. :(
Easy to fill, lid holds well. I like the dark color for bringing beer on a sunny day. If you keg, this is a great way to bring your beer without bringing the whole keg. When not transporting beer, works well for holding left over sanitizer.
These are great for bringing a healthy supply of tap brew to a gathering. The amber color is not only ideal, it's a must to keep oxidation at bay. Oddly enough, this size is outlawed in our home state of Florida so we are table to bring these to microbreweries for fills...that said, it becomes even more of a novelty to bring our own concoctions in half-gallon sizes! These are a great price and well worth it.
I love giving my brew out in these or bringing a growler to a friends house to share my beer_x000D__x000D_easy to fill and allows for around 4 pints
These 1/2 Gallon Jugs work excellent for bring beer to parties. Fill it right from my home tap, and I have great home brew to go. A MUST HAVE
