Default 32oz Mississippi Mud bottle reusable?

I was checking out these bottles for my collection. They’re large (32oz) and have a nice finger handle. What I’m wondering is if the aluminum screw-on cap will seal properly. Has anyone used or tried these bottles?

I used it years ago but only for small starters...the regular universal carboy bung fits. But since then I've learned that 1 qt. starters aren't really that helpful (unless your starting with a small amount of yeast) and you'll get 40 lashes if you put an airlock on your starter.

It would be fine to fill up and take over to a friend's house or whatever as long as you keep it cold and drink it relatively soon...although it prob technically would be an 'open-container' in your vehicle.

Worried about 'open container'? Slap a sticker (any sticker will do) over the cap and onto the neck of the bottle.

Instant 'seal'.

Though putting it in a cooler in the cargo compartment of the vehicle would probably solve the issue. 'Open container' laws typically only apply to the passenger compartment.

Is that stuff any good? I've seen it around and it's dirt (pun intended) cheap.

I actually like Mississippi Mud, it's a pretty smooth and good beer on the cheap...

I put a brown ale in one as a test last year and surprisingly it tasted as good as, if not better, than the regular bottles of that batch! I am now keeping my eye out for more of those. It would also work nicely as a small growler just to carry to a party.

I don't remember if I actually drank and liked the beer that came in it. I just grabbed one or two empties from the beer store where I get my returnables.
