Well ya don't know how long Grolsch had the washers on hand before they used them on a bottle. Dry exposure to air over time messes with rubber. BUT you can replace those washers, with fresh new ones, and they will last for many refillings. Longer if you reverse them each time.From experience grohlsh style bottles loosen up and allow CO2 to leak during priming. I like a nice fizzy beer. These type bottles need a lot of TLC to consistently prime over several batches.
