Default aluminum budlight bottles?

Can you reuse the aluminum budlight bottles? I thought a I seen a picture around here where they were being cleaned or something. After seeing I remembered that I have an empty 15 pack of these out in the garage.

Would they leave a tinny taste since they are being reused??


Thanks,
fishnfever

Yes you can reuse them, you have to use a bench capper though.

Did you sand off the finish, and paint on fresh colors? Or just scuff up, and paint over the old (anodized?) finish?

Just for grins, I sandblasted and powder coated one of them. It looks fantastic, but I doubt I'll do many more that way. Mostly, I just recap them with the existing label graphics. I've been wanting to try using sodium hydroxide (lye) to chemically strip the finish, though I'm not certain that it's a true anodized finish, so the NaOH may not work. Others have had success polishing them with fine grit wet/dry sandpaper.

I myeslf have wondered what the finish is. I've searched all over the internet, and found nada. The company that produces the bottles was also very tightlipped about the finish.
