    @Coronaeus nailed it but just pasting the image here as it did not appear in your post, OP.

    Welcome to the BA site, Tybo1512.

    We're going to need pics. If you want to add them into a post you'll need to use a third party hosting site. Imgur.com is the site that I use. Upload a pic to that site, copy the Direct link on the right side of the page of the uploaded pic (not the URL) and use the Image icon on the edit bar above (next to smiley face) to add to a post.

    Hint: if you can show the caps in one pic you'll save yourself a lot of work. Otherwise you'll have to go thru the above procedure for each single cap.

    I reckon that we won't be seeing pics in the foreseeable future. :slight_frown:

    @Tybo1512 My question above is intended for you, not the thread's OP.

    Welcome to the BA site, JPEL13. To display photos here you need to use a third party hosting site (which you did) but you need to copy the Direct Link for your pic onto your clipboard and then use the Image icon on the compose/edit bar here on BA (next to the smiley face).

    I also use imgur so it was easy to copy your pic into my image library and get the Direct Link that way. Here's your pic:

    An answer for some caps:
    Row 1, cap #1 I think is a cap that is used by homebrewers
    Row 2, cap #2 is Goose Island
    Row 3, cap #4 is Bell's Amber Ale

    There's a start for you. Others will chime in soon.

    For further clarification on R2C2, it's the Goose Island caps for their higher end beers like Sophie, etc.

    Can anyone help identifying the two caps on the right? I know the gray one is pretty generic

    Welcome to the BA site, Pelmeriup. Unfortunately we can't help you since we can't see your caps. This site requires that pics in thread postings be stored at a third-party hosting site like Imgur.com. Copy the Direct Link from there and insert it into the image dialog box (icon is next to smiley face above) while your cursor in at the location in the posting where you want to photo to appear.

    You screwed up linking the image of the cap, if you need a quick tutorial on posting photos on forum just tell me.

    Well that URL lead me to the pic and I was able to copy it to my account. From there I got the Direct Link that is needed to post here.

    You're looking for identification of the two caps that stand out to the right? I don't have the answer but now with the pic posted hopefully someone else will have the answer.
