Date: Sat, 22 Jul 89 12:44:42 CDT From: brad at cs.utexas.edu (blumenthal at home with the armadillos) Subject: on using returnable soda bottles On the most recent batch, we found ourselves running out of bottles, so we were scrambling for everything we could find (tense up, worry, drink another homebrew, we need the bottle :-). We used a six-pack of ten-ounce coke bottles in addition to the other random stuff, and they worked just fine. They were filled with very little headspace, so the resulting beer was about as carbonated as anything we've bottled. Of course, the bottles are clear (or at best, lightly tinted green), so there's the problem of light damage, but the other side of the coin is that it's easier to see how the conditioning is coming along (how clear things are, how much sediment is piling up, etc.). Also, since they're only ten ounces, you don't feel like you've wasted as much beer when you can't restrain yourself and drink a bottle before its time. Take care, brad Return to table of contents
