Cons --- You have to drink the Red Stripe that in them first

I use them.

They fit in smaller spots in my fridge.

Not really.

Step 1: Open bottle.

Step 2: Hold bottle over sink.

Step 3: Invert bottle.

Red stripe was my first import beer I drank on a regular basis after moving on from Miller light. It's crazy how good I thought it tasted back when I was 21 and how not-good it tastes now that I'm nearly 30. It's certainly no Yeti imperial stout, but it's also no Colt45.

Why get the paint off the bottles? I try hard to keep labels on bottles and bottle them appropriately, IE, put my stouts in stout bottles...But I'll never brew a light lager so...

Just soak them in any acid cleaner and the paint comes right off. Starsan will work but I usually use Limeaway or CLR
