Down here you can often get individual bottles of soda in glass; Coke, Pepsi, Sprite and Fanta. They're called "Mexican cokes" because that is in fact where they're made and they do not have HFCS in them. Coke the way you remember it tasting when you were a kid, before they started mucking around with it. I keep all those glass bottles.
The Mexican Coke bottles say "no return" (well, in Spanish) and I wonder if that means they'd not be ok for, say, a cider recipe?
Considering: Sparkling raspberry wine, carrot wine
In Primary: Ed's Apfelwein; Raspberry Puree Apple Cider
In Secondary: Pumpkin Pie Mead; Traditional Mead; Dried Elderberry Wine; Blueberry Wine; Texas Persimmon wine; White grape/peach wine; Texas Twang; Hi, Biscus! Metheglyn; A Maize-ing Wine
So far, so good.
