I have a large number of 12oz beer bottles that have been cleaned and de-labled. I am going to list them on craigs list what would be a fair price for me to ask?

I just paid 15 bucks for 5 cases, three of which had plastic carriers. But they were about 10 years old, and not entirely clean (but nothing that bleach and a jet wash couldnt fix).

that's a tough one- I was just given 3 cases de-labeled, but dirty bottles for free and just had another offer for 9 more free cases from another brewer in town. With how easy it is to get them from bars, I wouldn't charge much.

yeah kinda figured that Id sell them at 5 for a dollar, but seems as though that might be a bit high. still the local home brew store sells them for a dollar each, and I've seen people buying them.

I consider regular beer bottles "pay it forward" items, I give them away, and only ask that whoever takes them, helps out another brewer in some way in the future. Now grolsch bottles are a different story.

You could always just charge a 6 pack of good brew per 2 cases or something like that

.10 each Double deposit. You've put the labor into delabeling the bottles...

I concur, I've given out dozens of cases and its come back more times than not.

$5/case sounds about right. It's more for the delabeling than the bottles.
