Default Juice in Glass Bottles

Other than the apple juice at Whole Foods, does anyone know of juice being sold in glass 1-gallon jugs? I'm on a search for "free" glass carboys.

Thanks!

I haven't found any gallon glass jugs anywhere. $5 a piece at the LHBS get spendy. I'll have to check one of the whole foods stores to see if they have apple juice.

Don't know if it's available near you. Near me, it runs about $6 a gallon for really decent juice/cider, and they take an 8 1/2 stopper...

Hope this helps.

You can find many ciders bottled in glass for some reason, however they run $6+ a gallon. Last time I was at Whole Foods and saw some gallon cider in glass jugs for like $3. I filled my cart and danced to the register. They rang up at $7 and the staff checked-someone put the labels on the wrong shelf. I got nadda.

Otherwise cheap table wine can be found for under $10 in gallon jugs and are Perfect for topping off carboys.

I've been looking pretty hard and the Whole Foods 365 juice seems to be all there is in glass. The next step would be jug wines. While they are more in the $9-$10 range, they might be more popular at a party ;-)

I looked at their website and their juice/cider looks pretty interesting. Unfortunately, I am in Massachusetts and they only sell in the Southeast.

In the southwest we have Sunflower Market. They almost always have 1 gallon glass jugs of their house brand cider for on sale for $5.99. Their "Organic" is usually $6.99. Our Whole Foods have the glass jars but are normally $7.99 and $8.99 with an occasional sale for $6.99 and $7.99.

For reference... it cost me $13 for 2each: 1Gal jug w/top, stopper & airlock at my LHBS here in NY. Carlo&Rossi is $19/gal... I'ld say that the Whole Foods shop is a deal if you get the juice to drink or ferment. No one around here uses the glass jugs for juice so I don't have that option.

A little off topic but I saw 1 gallon #1 plastic bottles (like the big 5 gallon water jugs) for sale at our local grocery store (Kroger) for $2.50.
