I am new to making my own brew and this saturday I will be bottling for the first time. Can the bottles be twist top bottles or do they have to be all pop top bottles since you put pop tops on..?? Please help..!!! Not sure if the twist top bottles will make a good enough seal..

You can use twist tops with a bench capper, but with a wing capper they are too hit or miss to trust. I just use pop tops since I have a wing capper.

In addition to using pry-off bottles be sure to use bottles made of dark brown glass to prevent UV light from damaging your beer. You may have already know this but I thought it was worth mentioning.
