Look for a report on my results in a couple of weeks .The problem is. From what I know about beer making. After youtransfer fermented wort inot a bottle with a EZ Cap you will havea problem. Don't the EZ caps allow gases to escape? If so how areyou going to carbonate your beer in a bottle with the EZ cap on it.In order to carbonate carbon dioxide gases need to remain in thebottle.ORGINAL POSTER: ramjammn
