Default Clear Bottles

I have a Cream of Three Crops ready to go, but I'm a few brown bottles short. I do, however, have about 12 clear bottles.

Now I'm going to do it anyways, at most it will be about 6 bottles (probably less), but I was curious if anyone had any experience with this? I know clear bottles can skunk, but once these are bottled they will go into a lightless pantry to carb. And then straight the to fridge from there (I'll even do it at night) and they'll be the first drank in 2-3 weeks.

What do you think? I'll post the results.

Not a prob unless you are going to set them in the window sill. I actually prefer clear but they are harder to come by.

the evils of clear bottles are over exaggerated.

don't store them in the sun

I have clear bottles that I had painted black with artist acrylic on the exterior of them.

I've got a bunch of clear swing tops I use all the time. Like you say, keep them in the dark and they are absolutely fine.

I've used clear plenty of times, I like them better, I don't store them in the sunlight.

If they're in the dark they're absolutely fine. That said, if you're storing them long-term and will occasionally expose them to light, wouldn't hurt to drape something over them or keep them in a box...

Just be sure you drink them in complete darkness.
