Must be a common disease (or stuff on sale) as I also just bought some JWD... Honey Lager...to have something and for the bottles. Examined the necks as best as you can through the handle openings in the cardboard carrier (people look at you funny if you do this for too long) and they looked like poptops. Anyway, screwoffs.
I'm low on bottles and am bottling this weekend. I did the same tests of recapping and checked them the next day. Everything seemed OK...at least for one day. Unless I come up with more good ones tomorrow, I might end up using 10 screwtops in the batch.
Noticed the Guinness mini-kegs (1.3L) for $19.99 - - tempting use the mini-kegs instead of bottles plus you get the brew (vs buying the $9 empty ones). It came with a handpump too.
