So I'm bottling my IPA and i'm all worried about everything else. I got all my stuff together the sugar, siphoned and the realized I lost my capper. My beer is in the bottling bucket and I only have 20 flip top(grolsch style) bottles. They are 1/2 liter bottles. So here's the question. I have 3 Larger 1 lt bottles. Think I'll be OK or will they blow up or anything. I'm going to do it regardless cause I don't wanna waste any beer i don't know what else to do?

They won't blow up, just use your normal amount of priming sugar

I'm so mad at myself I have a gallon of beer sitting in a bucket and i don't know what to do with it. Maybe this means its time to start kegging.

how long can this beer sit in the bottling bucket?

If you're sanitary, rather long. Only thing you need to worry about is oxidation, so I'd try to keep it under a day.

how'd you lose your capper? Thing is usually pretty bulky...

Idk how i lost it. I have only been in this place a few months so still have boxes everywhere i think i mixed my brew gear in with trash and threw it out. I am missing some hop bags and some priming sugar.
Mac335 finally got home and we got the last bit into some bombers, using his capper. I hope sitting in the bucket for 2 hours is ok. I guess we'll find out.
And this is one hoppy beer can't wait to tr it.

2 hrs is nothing. Enjoy the brews!
