I buy this stuff anytime I see it because it comes in a swing-top bottle and my two year old loves the juice. They are fantastic for gifts as someone pointed out!

Looks kind of like this link, but not nearly as expensive. Only a buck or two!

French Sparkling Lemonade
I get these at my local Goodwill for about a dollar or two,er the bottles anyways

I recently bought 16 of these bottles from IKEA. I too am a bit worried about the fact that they're not green or brown. Has anyone ever spray painted their bottles?

I helped a friend bottle his first Mr Beer batch in a couple of these.

They seemed to work well, and I I had him throw them in a couple of brown paper bags...kinda like the bums do it!

For any Terps out there, I saw these last weekend at the IKEA in College Park, MD. I looked at them and thought to myself: no way they'll hold pressure. Guess I was wrong!

What's the longest anyone has stored beer in these bottles? I will be kegging most of my beer and was looking for an alternative to using a bottle capper for the few I want to put aside for a 4 or 5 months at most.

I have kept beer in these ikea bottles for many months with no problems for the most part. I had a couple that were flat because i didnt seat the top on just right when bottling. I have now replaced most of the gaskets with the grolsch replacements gaskets with great success.

So what's the consensus for worry-free light protection? I'm guess spray paint?

I wonder how much protection a full-bottle etching would do... a la the carboy etching threads on here. Just smear the glass etcher over the entire surface and haze the entire thing up... might divert a majority of the light?

where are people keeping their bottles that they are in direct sunlight all the time? i just keep my clear bottles in the basement or in a cabinet until im ready to put them in the fridge and drink. never had a problem in doing so.
