If you watch the video he shows a close up of a bottle that can take the novatwist caps and he says they have to be 30 mm, i have measured one of my caps and the inside diameter is 29mm.

I posted that i had used mine many times on 23-09-2015 (see post above) i am still using the original ones (they have been used many times over) and they still seal perfectly, a great product and price.

Hi Guys & Guyessssss,

Has anyone come up with a less lethal method of removing the metal 'collar' from screw top bottles so you can use Novatwist caps other than jamming a knife underneath the 'collar' and cutting them off?

I have just bought some Novatwist caps at 14p each from 'Shop4homebrew'
http://www.shop4homebrew.co.uk/shop/...t/?q=novatwist

There is a P&P of £4.95 but it's next day, and they use a company that texts you a 1 hour timeslot for your delivery (BLISS!)
I ordered 200, costs £32.95 or a fraction under 16.5p each (16.475p) they do 4 colours Gold, White, Red and Blue, if it's any help to anyone.
Sorry I forgot, if you want only Black and you can amass enough people to buy 1000, look here:
https://www.jbconline.co.uk/shop/bot...e-bottle-caps/
Works out at 10.51p each.

You must be drinking posh wine, the paint stripper we used to drink from TESCO before i started to make my own didn't have a metal collar.



I bought my 150cl bottles from an online shop and they came with the novatwist caps.

Sorry to disappoint you Chippy but the wine bottles are from drinking (Before I saw the Light!) the cheapest wine that Aldi's do around £3 a bottle. It actually was quite a reasonable wine! 1.5L bottles of course don't have a 'collar', I'm using the 75cl bottles which tend to.

Interesting idea but having a quick word with family an friends or your local pub will usually see you with more replacement metal caps than you know what to do with.

Update.

In the video he says the white disc in the cap will eventually compress so far it will not longer work, i cannot remember when i bought mine but would guess it was a year and a half ago, i have used mine many times over and they still seal perfectly.

Interesting but once I've got the labels off, the screw top wine bottles last forever and it's very easy to secure a supply of metal caps to replace those that wear out from family members who drink supermarket wines or a friendly landlord.
