I'm about to embark on my first journey to home brewed beer, but as a German, there is one critical ingredient that makes a beer a beer: A Beer Crate, or Bierkasten as we call it:
However, I have not seen them in the USA yet (Living in Orange County, CA), it seems that cardboard holders are the preferred way, which is kinda lame :)
I found a company to make custom crown caps, but so far I've been unsuccessful finding a company to make those plastic (HDPE) crates with a custom print, for 12 oz bottles. I found a company in China that can make me a batch of 2000, but that's massive overkill, I need 4 or 5 :)
Does anyone have any leads?
