I once bought a box at kmart. I don't remember them being expensive. Coopers PET, especially designed for beer.

Large chain stores, so big double ewe, the big red k. Should get them for around $16, much less likely to get decent pricing at LHBSes plus the big chain stores are usually open weekends and evenings.

Stay away from Coopers if you can. I have had many bottles leak at the molding at the bottom. Try Copper Tun bottles available from home brew shops. Same price as Coopers but better quality IMO.

I have been using Coopers PET bottles for six years and never had leaks or any problems.

Gav, K-Mart at the plaza or Big W at Kawana. About $13. Its a rort though, coz you only get 15 bottles. Probably better off buying a couple of cartons of Coopers Tallies and inviting me around to help you drink them :D
That is, if you can find anywhere around here that sells cartons of Coopers tallies :angry:
