Default grolsch bottles

In the used brewing equipment I bought among the gazillion long neck bottles there are 5 grolsch bottles. I like em and was wondering if there is a good place to buy a case of em? I can get em off of ebay but everyone on there seems to be trying to make a fortune off of shipping anymore.

try any brewing supply store online or locally. they all sell them and in brown. or start buying a bottle of fischer amber every night for a week or two and build up the collection that way. personally, i like drinking something out of them and not having to pay for shipping of empty bottles.

There are a couple German Lagers in tall brown flippies on the market as well, I can't think of the name right now, but I have a few of those, and iirc the beer wasn't bad.

I just had one of these Fischer's and there was something off about it. Could not put my finger on it but did not taste right. It was also $2.99 for a 22oz I believe.

I buy grolsch and Fischer bottles from my local recycle depot for .25 cents each...$3 bucks a dozen...that's the cheapest i've found. Check local classifieds, kijiji, craigslist, etc....

I'll be looking for those. I like the fact that it's not green. Probably only get a few though, for beer making and taking some beer to parties.

I use green grolsch bottles for Apfelwein.

Find a bar that sells the beer & ask if you can have the empties. Otherwise, I've seen them on craigslist for $1 a piece.

I have found both brown and green flip tops on craigslist. Both were very cheap deals but the bottles did need some love to get them clean. I plan to use the green Grolsch bottles for cider and anything else unhopped.
