) ... bottle caps weren't boiled [inner seals came off in one lot] I've had no
such problem with caps designed for home canning, available from the hardware
store for < $2.50/gross. These are plain caps, not sugar-water over-runs, and
so contain no chance to win a prize.

The inner seals cling tenaciously.

Being plain, they're ready if you want to enter your beer in any sort of
competition. I entered some of #25 in the fair; this was the first time they
could recall having anyone enter beer. I think that they sampled it warm the
next day. I don't think that it won any prizes, but I've enjoyed it, as lot
#25 was good beer. Beer is entered under canning as 410: "other liquids".
