I am planning on brewing higher "octane" stuff.
BTW, if swing-tops are OK, where did you buy them online?
My local shop has them, but they are $3.50 per.
i've always used swing tops. never had any issues with them. but i'm not nearly as pedantic as some people on this board seem to be.
anyway, it's pretty hard to mess up capping bottles. just give it a tug before you put it in the closet
edit: buy bottles at a LHBS, its much cheaper not having to pay for shipping and worry about breakage
