This may be a dumb question, but anyone know if you can use champagne bottles? I have one in my basement that has a nice lip around the tip of the bottle, but I haven't tried to actually cap it yet...

most wing cappers wont work. if you have a bench capper it might. depends on the bottle.

It must be over 300. I don't even know how many I have. Probably closer to 500, but 300 for sure.

Wow, I only have like 30 some odd PETs because of my Coopers kit and I'm just starting off. That AND my apartment's too small for any more bottles. I'll probably end up buying me a keg so I can just keg my brews(that will be a while, lol)

200 Belgian 750ml cork cage
75 or so 375ml cork cage
50 ez cap 375 Brown
24 ez cap 375 blue

All rounded obviously.

I keg mostly but bottle a lot for aging. Depending on the beer usually use my beer gun to bottle. Right now I'm using about 1/4 if my bottles
