I've started my first few batches of cider in 1 gallon glass carboys and am going to rack them to a few different containers now for clearing and mellowing now that fermentation is way over with.
I saved the bottles that I received the juice in. I have thick plastic 64 ounce Welch's bottles, regular plastic 'milk jug' type jugs and a few two liter Coke bottles. I plan on racking to these, tightening them up real well and letting them set for about six months in my cellar, opening up my fermenter for additional brew.
Would these bottles work, or would one type be better than the other? The plastic on the fruit juice bottles is thick and I get a really good seal. Any ideas?
