If you brew Belgian ales, especially if you brew "special" Belgian ales, these are the bottles for you! I make wooden crates for these, to put them away for long aging. Makes a special gift even better.
When you brew authentic Belgian ales, you often carbinate them to a high level. Because of this, they are more prone to bottle bombs with normal, capped bottles. Belgian bottles are thicker to take that pressure. But most importantly, a corked and caged (called "wire cage" at Midwest) Belgian bottle is less likely to pop off than your normal crown cap.
we do small batches of Belgian wine in January to give away at Christmas. We use these bottles and dress them up with labels and goodies like sausage and cheese. They look great!_x000D_
If you've been brewing Belgian styles for a while, inevitably you'll brew a special batch that you'll want to bottle in these 750 ml bottles. Corking doesn't take much longer than capping once you learn the process, and corked bottles of your own homebrew make an elegant and impressive gift. (Plus, it's incredibly cool to see an entire case of these and know that it's your beer inside!) You'll need Belgian corks, wire hoods, and a floor corker to bottle these bad boys. These bottles are thicker than standard brown bottles and can stand up to the higher carbonation levels of many Belgian styles. Very worth the extra time and equipment.
I brew mostly sour or Brett beers so I love these bottles. No problems with them, and people seem to think they are getting something extra special...which they are! The only downside is it does take a little more time to cork them and you need a corker. Love them._x000D_
