Taking your brew places it’s never been capable of going is now a reality with your shiny new EcoGrowler! Please take a moment to appreciate the proper care of your growler through the lifecycle of its contents.
Filling EcoGrowler The name of the game is eliminating all the oxygen so you can experience the benefit of significantly elongated freshness thanks to both 100% light and air elimination.
No matter if you’re simply at home pouring a few brews in your EcoGrowler for a float down the river, or you’re an avid homebrewer or tap room owner utilizing our filling tube for a max pour, once you’re done filling the growler, gently squeeze it until a little liquid pours over onto the threads of the mouth. Tighten the cap down while this happens, and you’ve successfully rid the container of air. In fact, thanks to our oxygen scavenging layer on the inside of the cap, any rogue air molecules will be trapped so they can’t spoil your precious beverage!
If you are equipped with one of our handy dandy filling tubes, the process is a breeze. Simply insert the tube into the EcoGrowler, and tighten the stopper on the mouth to create a seal. To prevent foaming, it’s ideal to start filling from your tap slightly after you pull the handle to avoid excess oxygen being forced into the pour.
Allow the EcoGrowler to fully expand to capacity, and as soon as liquid starts to show in the filling tube above the stopper, you know you’re all set. Turn off your tap, pull out the filling tube, and initiate the ‘wet sealing’ process just mentioned above.
Storing EcoGrowler Once your EcoGrowler is filled, it is absolutely imperative to keep it cold at all times to maintain freshness and avoid issues associated with overheating. While your growler features two fractable seals that will allow gas to slowly escape in the event it warms up or is hyper-agitated, err on the side of making sure to toss a couple ice packs in your bag with it if you’re planning on going for a hike, playing 18 holes, sunbathing at the beach, etc.
Cleaning EcoGrowler As soon as you’ve finished the deliciousness inside your EcoGrowler, make sure to cleanse it thoroughly to avoid bacterial growth and return it to a pristine state. Breweries will not fill unsanitary containers of any type, and our growler is certainly no exception to this rule. We recommend rinsing it out with warm water and soap a couple times by filling it partially, tightening down the cap, and shaking vigorously. Then one additional time with clean water to get it back to its original odorless awesomeness. To clean the mouth of Ecogrowler and the threads of the cap, a little soap and toothbrush scrub will do the trick. IN SHORT: 1. Eliminate all the oxygen before sealing the cap 2. KEEP IT COLD at all times once it’s filled 3. Cleanse it thoroughly after use
