    Strap Stoppers - 4 Pack - StewMac

    Seriously...for literally $2-3.00 more you could go to the store and get a 4 pack of Grolsch beer.

    Why in the world would anyone buy these WITHOUT the beer? Even if you don't drink you could gift it to a friend who would be appreciative and like you even more in exchange for the rubber gaskets.

    StewMac is basically suckering people to buy them beer so they can get the gaskets off the bottle caps. BRILLIANT! Wished I thought of it first!

    I'd be selling packs of 24 myself, why waste time with just 4.
    Do the job properly or don't bother!

    The beer, gaskets, or both?

    I'll go with both. :cheers:

    Vin, Vin, Vin....why skip the beer? A 4 pack of Grolsch is about $8.99 - $9.99.

    That means you could get 8 for around $20.00.

    That's a better deal than 5 for $14.99 any day. :cheers:

    Hate Beef Stu Mac. Find a local or online homebrew beer store and get a small bag of Grolsch washers. I did this like 10 years ago and still have everyone of them.

    I use nylon washers from hardware store. They work great and you can buy about any brand of refreshment with the money saved. No bright colors or logo though.

    Word of warning, not all beer bottles are alike. Personally, although I live just few clicks from the brewery, I don't go in for Grolsch, but they seem to be moving to the new type of bottle where the seal is fixed to the lid. Might only be for the Dutch market, no idea. Plenty of fine, fine German beers that still have 'em, though... :cheers:

    I tried these this just this summer. Six sets for just $5.29 on Amazon, and free shipping.
    Yes they work.
    Stew Mac is high on just about everything...but they're a specialty shop, so that comes with the territory.
    I saw a local liquor store carries the beer so I'll have to check that out...the beer and the gasket.
