Default empty bottles

how many do you have??

Wow just started cleaning bottles this afternoon and did not realize how fast they accumulate. just starting out in the hobby and I have 200 already I am sure this is not a lot for some but seems like enough for 4 batches of beer need to start brewing more often.

I have a team of faithful alcoholics/friends who provide me with hundreds of the things. Still, they will work for homebrew so they are cheap labour at least. There are uncounted bags of them in the cupboard. God knows how many.

I have about 150 22 ounce and 40 12 ounce. Just sort of picked them up over the last 3 years. I usually bottle my batches in both 22 ounce and 12 ounce so the variety comes in handy.

Two days ago I had 8 cases of empties. After an extended bottling session this weekend I am down to 4.

I think we have somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20 cases.....I think I probably can stop saving new empties now.

I have about 175 12 oz beer bottles and between 150 and 175 wine bottles - some full some empty. What is kind of sucky is that will all the wine and beer that will need to be bottled in the coming month, I need more - especially wine bottles.

Not nearly enough: I have around 90 22oz bottles (plus 4 cases of 12oz) and with the batches I have now fermenting and the ones I have planned for the Christmas season, it's not enough. Plus I have a Winter Warmer on deck that will need several months of aging, so that takes away bottles for a prolonged period of time.

I really don't want to bottle in the 12 oz because it takes longer (I'm lazy) and they are Carlsberg bottles with the logo etched on them (so it looks kind of ghetto when you bring them out of the house or serve them to others)... They're also green wich doesn't help either if you bottle dark beers, but for something like the girlfriend's witbier and for personal consumption, it'll be okay.
