nick-o-rye Posted July 21, 2011 Share Posted July 21, 2011 I was filling a new bottle we are about to offer (375 mL) with vodka and it went half way up the neck. When i went and showed my boss i said that the vodka was cool around 70 degrees (cool for texas) and if it sat in a trunk at over 100 degrees the cap could blow off, or at least leak. So that got me thinking about the 4 other sizes we offer (50 mL, 750 mL, 1 L, and 1.75L). If we bottle at ambient (around 85-95) and the ttb did a check and they have it in a cool room the levels are going to be off. I was wondering if there were any industry standards or guidelines to filling temps and thermal expansion. Or if anyone knows where the ttb has addressed this (chap. 6 was not helpful).I wanted to get the forums opinion before i raised any flags at the ttb. thanks for any input -nick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
