The only draw back with some other glass bottles that have accidentally been over primed, is the potential for being glassed by your own home brew.Josho said:The only drawbock with the swing tops is if they are accidentally overprimed when you open them they go POP! and make you poo your pants.
Have you seen how ridiculously thin the new soft drink bottles are? Especially the 600ml bottles.Ducatiboy stu said:I did read somewhere that the coopers pet bottles are thicker than normal pet bottles
Ross, like the brewer just mentioned, bottle a single batch, half in glass half in brown PET. I guarantee that after 12 months you will notice a substantial difference. There will be a difference after 3 months, but maybe you won't notice it.Ross said:There's nothing wrong with using the brown pet bottles produced for beer. Saying the beer is ruined after 3 months is just plain wrong.
James85 - May I suggest you bottle a single batch of beer, half in new plastic beer bottles & the other half in glass. I can guarantee there will be no taste difference.
Personally I love glass, but some of the comments about plastic in this thread, (which is a much safer product for new brewers) are just plain wrong & misleading.
