Default Empty White Labs Vials

Hey - I was wondering if there was anyone out there with some empty white labs vials.. I am looking to turn them into tap handles. Ideally I'd like to find 4 of them, but would take any amount. I have a bunch of batches going right now from washed yeast or else I would brew some more and buy some WL yeast!

Is there anyone who could send me a few and I'll cover the cost of shipping and throw in a some cash for the trouble? Thanks!

I have made tap handles with em and it did not look good. Not trying to knock your idea just offering advice.

Don't have any myself but WhiteLabs themselves does this tap handle in their tasting room. And it is pretty neat, see pic here http://www.whitelabs.com/white-labs-tasting-room

If you want them plain, without the White Labs label, have you searched for "bottle preforms"?

Ebay link.

I'd pay $3.00 to not have to clean the glue off of each one!

I've got 4 you can have for free. If you just want to cover the cost of shipping, that'd be nice.

Thanks for the info, guys. Yeah, I've seen them done well - hopefully I can pull it off.

I'd order them from sites, but the cost is really prohibitive - around $6 per for a small order; and I don't need 25 of them.. I would just go buy some yeast, then for those prices!

I have hops in one, grain in one and oats in one. I used the preforms, cheap, easy and looks good.
