Not that, thats a bad thing.
Orval, too. Those bottles are very thick and much prettier than the Duvel ones (IMO), and the contents are phenomenal.

St. Martin also uses the same bottle (or very close) as Duvel. And, as previously stated, most Trappist bottles are heavy duty so don't limit yourself to just Orval if you enjoy that style of beer. Chimay is probably one of the easiest Trappist beers to find...

I use a lot of the martinelli's cider bottles, they hold a high level of carbonation and can be had very cheap around new years/etc plus you get the juice to make a cider with

FWIW you could probably use most any bottles, I think youll find that 2.8-3.0 vols of CO2 is quite a lot in any beer youll make, and pretty much anything should hold that level, I bottle a lot of things in regular beer bottles at that level and Ive never had an issue, I do like the look of the belgian bottles and 750's though

Did she find the 750mL bottles or the 12oz bottles? Talking with NBB's distributor, I think he said they were going to 12ozers...

oh god i hope its not the smaller bottles.
The last time i got some they where in the 750's.

Then again if the price per case is reduced accordingly i could care less.
Then i could get a case of the kriek as well.

i will know here on Sunday when i go over for family dinner.
