Details

Bottling your kombucha tea or water kefir with some fruit juice allows the carbonation to increase making for a delicious, healthy, and fizzy probiotic beverage your whole family will enjoy.

750 ml amber-colored glass bottle with flip-top (Grolsch-style) stopper system made of metal, polymer, and plastic. The bottles are 11-7/8" tall, or 12-3/8" with the lids on.

Please note: when using the bottles for any product that will be under pressure (water kefir, kombucha, beer, lacto-fermented soda, etc.) be sure to check the bottle for cracks prior to each use as cracks will weaken the integrity of the bottle. We also recommend "burping" the bottles periodically to relieve excess pressure.

Why I Love This Product

Although mason jars with good seals work, flip-top bottles are by far the best for second ferments. They look sleek, and seal fabulously to help your cultured drinks create great carbonation. I own 16 of these bottles, split between water kefir and kombucha. My favorite drink is grape flavored water kefir. I fill the bottle with water kefir to just below where the neck narrows, then add about ¼ cup organic grape juice. It cultures 48 hours on the counter with a “burping” at 24 hours to release any gases. By the 36th-48th hour I have fizzy carbonated grape kefir that is poured over frozen blueberries. It’s amazing!

    • Are these grolsch bottles or bottles with similar caps? The growth cap sealer looks and feels like rubber.
    • They are Grolsch style flip-top bottles with silicone seals.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Jackie at 3/27/2014 1:16 PM
    • Is the rubber gasket only good for a limited amount of uses? I notice that several online bottles say they are only good for 6-8 uses.
    • The rubber gasket is good to use many, many times. We have had no reports that is it wearing out after only a few uses.

    • All the sites I look at say to use clear bottles. I trust your information that the amber is fine, I'm just wondering why they all are adamant on the clear?
    • There seem to be two schools of thought on bottling kombucha. Those who advocate for clear bottles claim that the kombucha will try to detoxify any environment it is in. Their theory is that darker glass has more impurities, thereby causing the kombucha to leach more of those impurities into the kombucha. Truthfully, any glass can contain impurities, and so it is always important to buy bottles from a source you trust.

      Other kombucha aficionados point out that kombucha, as a life form, is sensitive to light. Storing the kombucha in a dark glass container blocks more light and protects the scoby.

      It is also much easier to come by amber-colored flip-top bottles. Especially ones strong enough to handle the build up of pressure you can sometimes get with kombucha and water kefir. So some people just go for what they can obtain! We encourage you to do your own research and decide what you feel is best for your own needs.

    • How long to the stoppers last? I've read some places they only last 5 uses.....is that true with these bottles? If so, can you get replacement tops?
    • Our customers are very pleased with the Grolsch Flip Top Bottles and have not reported issues with the tops. We do not carry replacements but you may be able to find them at your local beer and wine making supply store.

    • Why are the bottles plastic?! Why not glass?
    • The bottles are glass. The stopper system is made of metal, polymer, and plastic
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Debbie at 4/17/2013 8:40 PM
    • Can these bottles be sterilized in boiling water?
    • Yes, but I would recommend removing the metal piece with its cap. The caps could become deformed when heated to boiling, especially if left unattended. They are fairly easy to remove once you get used to them.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From LoPo at 3/19/2013 9:00 PM
    • We use your grolsch flip-top bottles are are wondering the best cleaning method between fermenting water kefir. We are noticing residue and do not want to use harsh cleaners or anything that would affect the fermentation.

    • It's good to avoid harsh cleaners, particularly anti-bacterial detergents. I'd recommend a bottle brush for easier cleaning.

  • From Cheryl at 9/18/2012 7:06 AM
    • I am very disappointed to see that these come from China...I need some, but, hope to find some made in the USA.

      Do you have any plans to stock USA made bottles in the future?

      Thank you!
    • We have searched for a US manufacturer for the bottles, it appears that none are making this style of bottle.

  • From Jennifer at 7/29/2012 11:20 PM
    • If I'd like to do a second brewing stage on Kombucha, where would I find more information? I'm going to be on GAPS (a variation of the SCD) and regular sugar is a big no-no, but fruits and honey are okay. I was thinking that perhaps a continuous brew of the regular Kombucha and then adding fruits for flavor and giving them a second ferment- but I can't have alcohol either... as I'm nursing. I'm not sure where to ask these questions.
    • You will find information about a second fermentation here: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/bottling-kombucha-and-water-kefir Kombucha requires regular sugar for fermentation, you will find more information about choosing ingredients here: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/kombucha-ingredients We would encourage you to contact your health care provider to discuss drinking Kombucha while nursing.

Great bottles Review by Linda

The transaction and shipping were flawless, and the bottles arrived in excellent condition. I use them for water kefir, for which they are perfect. My only "issue" with them is they are difficult for me to seal/open, probably because I have some arthritis.

Perfect. Review by Peggy
Value
Quality
Price

I purchased 6 of these bottles for making my water kefir, and I don't know how I would do it without them. They're perfect for the second level of culturing if you want a bubbly 'soda' type drink. I may need to order more to keep up with our production. I was also pleasantly surprised that the cost of shipping wasn't prohibitive.

very difficult to open Review by amomweg
Value
Quality
Price

I bought one of these some time ago and have been very happy with it. I bought two more as I am increasing my repertoire of homemade sodas. The problem is that the wire is so tight that I cannot open it gently. I have to use a screwdriver, and when it pops, the carbonated drink explodes all over the place. I think this particular batch may have slipped through quality control.

Response from CFH: We're happy to help with tips, so please contact us!

Very Elegant, but... Review by CTGirl
Price
Value
Quality

I find these are very difficult to open. I'm kind of surprised by the stellar reviews. They are excellent quality, and very reasonably priced, but they really are not pleasant to open. Over time, they get a little easier to open, but I have broken many nails (and I have short nails!). Also, they are a little too tall for my fridge. Overall, very nice, but I prefer to use a Ball jar (not nearly as elegant, but much more user friendly).

I ordered one bottle and liked it so much I placed another order for more. I use the bottle for second ferments of Kefir water, and Kombucha as well as bottles for my homemade vinegar. They make great gifts especially when filled with my special recipes. I researched the price on the internet and this is the best price for a few bottles at a time.

I'm constantly on the lookout for swing-top bottles, and these are some of the best value I've found other than some holding fancy soda at Rosauers ($3.99 for a swing-top bottle with soda in it). They easily hold a batch of water kefir made in a 1-quart jar.

I am using this for water kefir and to bottle fresh juice when I'm heading to the beach. I have also been storing coconut milk in it.

This bottle works great. My only complaint is that it is hard to open. I have to use a screw driver.

These bottle work great. I order 6 and gave 2 to my daughter. If I had any issues at all with these it would be the size. I think I would rather use more bottles that were 1/2 the size. Bust they work perfectly!

The bottles are high quality and work great. I wish they were clear glass so you could see the content in the bottle better. It would also be easier for cleaning. I will look for similar bottles that are clear and I am not likely to buy more of these.

These were much more than what I imagined them to be. They are a great size, the top fits snuggly on it, so no worry of leakage. The shipment was quick and they were packed well to prevent shipping. I love the dark color, as I've heard that is always better in protecting your product inside. Thanks Cultures for Health. You are a wonderful website.
