I had to resort to stubbies last night when bottling a brew and it sucked so i'm looking for some long neck crownies for my next brew (or 2)

If you have any unwanted longies please let me know and i'll come pick them up

Happy to pay for them and also happy to take some freebies :icon_cheers:

Happy to travel around Sydney

thanks
Matt

Go to your local pub/club and see if they'll give you some empty champagne bottles. They will have a s#$t load after last night.

A wide capping bell is only about $5 from your LHBS and matching crown seals aren't much more expensive.

champagne bottle will do the job but the bottles are slightly bigger/thicker and will take up too much room.... i'm space poor at the moment cause i'm pumping out a bunch of brews before it gets too hot

i used to work in a club and i know how ferral the bottle bins can be at the end of the night.... empty bottles are full of gunk and broken glass.... if you do get some please be careful when cleaning them

cheers

I'm a bit shocked that Coopers dont release home brew longneck bottles (or just the normal talls, sans contents). They should make em cheap, stock then with the plastic ones. Or do they already and have gone past me?

We used to / somes times still do, collect coopers longnecks from customers who drop them back in. We give them away to homebrewers, usually a few dozen would be around.

Waste day used to be where i would get mine from. Ride around on the bike, and pick them up. Found it hard to impossible to not get what was needed quickly from the glass/plastic bins.
