The Bottles have Arrived

Hi Brewers,

Yesterday I received my 330ml brewing bottles. I went with the Heineken green colour. I bought 72 bottles with 100 caps for only NZ$30. I found them on a site here in New Zealand called Trademe, essentially it is the equivalent of eBay.

I also invested in a good quality bottle capper, which was a bit pricey, NZ$33 at the brewcraft store, but I guess I have to put the caps on somehow.

  1. I used to just sanitize old Grolsch bottles. No need to cap. Though, capping is fun I admit.

  3. @Hart, I was thinking about that but I seriously don't like the tast of Grolsch and they don't sell the resealable 300mls here in NZ.

  17. Interesting. I'm curious to know how cost-effective it is, making your own vs buying from the store. I know that's not the only draw of it, but still, curious.
