4.8 / 5.012 ReviewsChoiceWhere obviously most choose to keg, some of us choose to bottle. _x000D_ If your going to bottle, these are the must have's._x000D_ Start a beer, decide to not drink it all, simply reseal the top and refrigerate. The beer is still great the following day, or whenever you get back to your beer._x000D_ These bottles due to the cost are a do not loan out period for samples to friends._x000D_ When I bottle I always make the usual 22 oz bottles and 12 oz bottles to hand out as samples & gifts. These bottles I never hand out, due to never knowing when they will be returned or ever._x000D_ New gaskets are cheap, although I have only replaced one gasket so far._x000D_ Keep the original box and reinforce if necessary with some duct tape for all the handling you will do, putting them on your shelving and taking them down._x000D_ Washing & Sanitizing with Star San or similar agent is also very simple other then time. I use a 6 gallon container, fill with Star San, then fill each bottle individually. Then drain each bottle back into the 6 gallon container and drench the lips of both bottles and bails and gaskets as I pour them back into the 6 gallon container. ( doing 2 at a time using each as I dump them to sanitize the other)_x000D_ Put them on a bottle tree, and bottle the following day._x000D_ Marking the bottles - You can use a felt pen and scribble letters on top of each bottle - but then you have to use hairspray to remove when you want to re-use._x000D_ You can put labels on but then you have to remove later._x000D_ I use pipe cleaners in multiple colors and wrap around the necks of the bottles for use in identifying the beer. (cheap, easily removed)_x000D_ I landed up running out of colors in the pipe cleaners and resorted to colored rubber bands to wrap around the necks as well. You can order these online. _x000D_ Pipe cleaners 6 colors, rubber bands 27 different colors._x000D_ These bottles are exactly what I wanted to store multiple types of beers, easily and be able to use them over and over again. New bails are available to order and new gaskets. I have no idea why you would need bails, but its nice to know they are available._x000D_ Last - there is another ez-cap bottle that you will find online that is a bit cheaper. Beware, those the gaskets and bail are one piece and you will have to replace the entire bail with new to get a replaceable gasket. This product is the correct one you want._x000D_ Also -- Midwest seems to like to have free shipping from time to time. Order these bottles then and save money._x000D_ EnJoy!_x000D__x000D_ Although pricey, you cannot find these bottles cheaper anywhere. That is the only reason I gave 5 stars to the price. The Quality and Value I gladly give 5 stars to this product.August 26, 2015One little problemIn retrospect I wish I bought clear bottles instead of amber. Not your fault of course but mine. If I could I would trade these with someone in a heartbeat. I am using bottles for kombucha and I would feel much better seeing the different colors and seeing better when I'm cleaning the bottles too.February 1, 2016Great BottlesGreat bottles, make bottling really easy. They are pretty heavy duty, thicker than regular bottles for sure. I'll definitely be getting more.January 25, 2016Perfect BottleThese bottles make bottling easy. You can also pour and then refrigerate a partial bottle. They are all so attractive, so I use them for gift giving my home brews and mead.January 1, 2017Purchased
