Yeaaaaaaaah! Now this is a subject I know every reader will be holding on to the edge of their seat because of the massive thrill it provides.
Ok. Enough joking.
What’s the skinny on oxygen barrier bottle caps? I purchased a bag of them for my hard cider, knowing that I would be storing them for a long period of time.
They claim to have an “oxygen scavenging agent” embedded into the plastic liner inside the cap.
Do they actually work? Has anyone experimented with a batch where some beers were capped with regular bottle caps and some were capped with these kooky oxygen barrier ones? Were the beers capped in regular bottle caps unable to keep their freshness longer?
Do they keep beers from getting oxidized? Are they worth the extra $1.31 I spent on them?
