Default Clear Glass Bottles?

Sorry if this question has been asked many times prior to this, but does anyone know where I can buy 12 ounce CLEAR bottles online? Must take crown caps... 26mm standard preferrably. Thanks so much for any help... I have searched the internet for hours now and haven't come up with anything.

I work at my LHBS part time, none of the wholesalers we use even carry them any more. Your best bet is to get some empty corona bottles and use an acid soak to remove the paint. There is a thread around here where someone described accidentally finding this out by soaking some corona bottles in star san overnight and then setting them out to dry. As they dried the paint flaked off.

on a homebrew scale? I personally don't think so at least for skunking from light and such. Brewers should know how to properly store their beer anyway.

is there another reason you had in mind?
