What is the largest Grolsch bottle made?  I know the 1.5L are very common.
I've seen one that I'm guessing is around 2.5L in size and was probably used
as a Promo.  Does anyone know the exact size and where to get them?  Thanks.

I have one I got a few years ago.  It was a "gift pac" promo with two
glasses.  It's 50 oz.  I've reused it a few times.

full, the 5L was produced sealed and empty as a promo ( to hold bar
tips??)

I've had mixed carbonation results with bottles that size.  Sometimes
they don't seal correctly and sometimes they just come out a bit off.  I
would pay extra attention when you bottle, especially with the 2.5L.

Grolsch bottles, what is the largest? (UPDATE)


Well, I found one on eBay in Australia.  I'll be keeping my eye on it in
hopes the price doesn't climb too high as shipping is going to be very high
to the States.  It seems, according to the auction description, they had
design problems holding up to the pressure and were never offered to the
public.  It won't be good for holding beer, but will look nice on the bar.

want them :)

I haven't tried them yet (still have about a hundred regular Grolsh bottles,
but if I ever have a total disaster, I'm going qith these puppies.

Those are standard German style growlers. I think you can get them filled
with beer at certain liqour stores for a lot less than $22.50!
Mike Dixon would know better than I, since he's a great fan of german
growlers.

Thanks for the link.  I didn't get the picture to load so I'm assuming
theses are the brown bottles with the flip-top and aluminum handle?  Yes,
you're right about getting the German style growlers cheaper than that
filled with beer.  Local breweries charge a $12.00 deposit on the growler
bottle and one brewer here requires that you buy the bottle for $10.00 then
clean and keep it for refills.  I do like the growlers and have a bunch of
them.  Thanks.

Re: Grolsch bottles, what is the largest? (UPDATE)


What kind of liqour stores?, do they have them in Texas?
I live in the boonies (and in a dry county, no alcohol sales at all). we
have to drive 2 hours to get to a homebrew supply, or order online, but if
they have someplace in Houston that sells those things already full, I'm
there!! it would be worth the trip.
Any info?
Thanks

Re: Grolsch bottles, what is the largest? (UPDATE)


Sorry M, no info on beer in Texas other than if it ain't shiner, buckhorn
or some kinda beer flavored water, you might be out of luck. (At least
according to my Texas girlfriend...)

Here's a site that has them for way cheaper than the previous post:

See the 2 liter "Flipper" for $10.06. That's about right price wise.

Re: Grolsch bottles, what is the largest?


Why do people like Morebeer so much? I find them a bit pricey. I got a
case of 16oz flip-tops for $18 at my LHBS. 6.5 gallon carboy for $28, 5
gallon for $25? Come on. Do they offer free shipping or what?

Perhaps their ingredient/kit quality makes up for the high prices.

Yes. It's plastered quite visibly (in big, blinking letters) on top of
every page on their site. Maybe you didn't see it because it looks like
an advertisement and your brain subconsciously blocks it out ;-)

You need to order over $49 of stuff to get the free shipping, though.
But they offer it on everything (I think), including entire sacks of
grain. You also get discount pricing on 4+ sacks per order.

More Beer is very close to me.    I have met some of the owners and
the guys that run the local shop in so cal are great.  You get
something from them that is hard to find today "Service" and
"Quality".  For that it is worth paying a bit more.

BTW  6.5 Gal is 28.50, 5 gal is 25.40  and I believe shipping is free
for any order over 49 bucks.  So your price comparison rant is totaly
pointless.

I'm not sure how large you're interested in, but...

Around here I can get Chimay in 2.5 *gallon* bottles which I believe
are flip-tops. No, I'm not kidding. I'll check it out next time I pass
by the store (John's Market in Portland, OR) just to be sure.

Oh, and the bottles happen to be brown, which is a plus. Kind of
expensive, though, seeing as they contain Chimay.

Re: Grolsch bottles, what is the largest?


Darn interstate alcohol shipping rules...I'd ask you to hook me up with
one...I'd kill for a Chimay...well maybe seriously maime anyway, well ok,
verbally threaten.

Not to mention having that bottle.  Do they have a website or email, snail
mail?  I'd love to get in touch with them, if you would be so kind.

Even if they can't ship it to you, they may be able to explain how you
can get one yourself. John's Market is a beer and wine bonanza. They've
got entire AISLES of rarely imported beers. Chimay, yeah, they got an
aisle for Chimay...

You can reach them by mail at:

John's Market
3535 SW Multnomah Blvd
Portland, OR 97219

Or by phone:

(503) 244-2617


Re: Grolsch bottles, what is the largest?


word...i'm on it.

I want to try a "real" trappist/abbey...cuz the batches i've made (i've
duplicated the same taste twice with subtle differences - different hops)
turned out awesome & if i'm anywhere close to the real thing I'll be happy.

I know there are 6's, 8's & 10's...I've only tried an 8 so that's what i'm
looking for, but i'm also looking for the other 2 to get a taste & possibly
duplicate those.  PLUS, i can hopefully culture the yeast since they should
all be bottle conditioned.

This place sounds pretty awesome...maybe I'll arrange a road trip this fall.

Thanks a million!!!!

If you ever do make it out this way be sure to stop at Liquid Solutions
as well. They also have a killer selection. And of course there's all
the brew pubs ;-)

Re: Grolsch bottles, what is the largest?


After thought P.S.

I was actually meant to post was....I have a locally printed homebrewing rag
from the NC/SC/VA region that shows partners of a local microbrewery holding
aloft their 1 millionth bottle (or something like that) which is a massive
Grolsch style bottle...it's huge maybe 2-2 1/2 feet long...think I threw it
away but my local brew shop has more copies..I'll swipe one wednesday & scan
that pic.  It may actually be the same sized bottle as the 2.5 gal those
Chimays come in...it was huge that's all i remember.
