First of all, there's nowhere to buy new bottles around here. So I went to a local bar and asked them for their pop-cap/crown-cap. Unfortunately bud light is the favorite around here and they could only scrounge up 20 or so corona bottles (clear ). But, they gave me a couple aluminum 16 ounce bottles that are pop-cap. So, I came home and capped one. It works.

Anyone have good reasons not to use these? besides the fact they're permanently labeled. The capper had a little difficulty getting a grip, but it capped the top tightly.

Maybe I'm crazy.. but it's a question.

PS. They're aluminum but seem to be lined with some kind of plastic inside so no taste-worries.
