First time brewer here... I have swing-tops that affix to used bottles via this sort of band:
I am wondering if I am utilizing it correctly or if there is a trick or something for wrapping the band around the neck of the bottle that I am somehow not seeing or understanding... My first attempt resulted in this:
While the seal seems to be fairly tight, I am skeptical as to whether or not it is going to hold when pressure starts to build up inside once I have bottled the beer with sugar for the final fermentation process.
Thanks in advance for your advice! Cheers.
