Default I think I'm set for bottles

Found on craigslist 156 new + 24 rogue/stone bomber bottles for $50. A little dusty, but they were getting cleaned anyway. I should be set for my next 6-7 batches!

You should've spent $50 on beer, threw a BYOMB (Bring your own Microbrew) and then you would've had bottles and beer to drink!

This post just reminded me I need more bottles, so went on CL.

100 swing top bottles for free, posted yesterday. Fingers crossed that they are still available.

And for anyone in my area, these bottles are far far away from my area so don't even bother looking on CL

I love Craigslist, you just have to be patient for the free stuff and look all the time.

I just bought 2-20 lb CO2 tanks and 2 ball lock kegs for $80!!!

I don't need them I just couldn't pass up such a good deal.

20 oz or 20lb?

Yea I saw a great deal on a kegging set up a couple weeks ago and went as far as e-mailing him until I remembered I don't have near enough space for a keg, and for my living situation it is completely impractical

Yeah, I might be set for a bit for bottles as well. I found a local guy who has been saving bottles so he could start brewing but never can find the time. He sold me 225 bottles for $20. Here is my trunk after we loaded em. I mainly bottle for competitions or to give a few away.

I hope he rinsed the bottles for you. (Probably not) I hate cleaning moldy bottles,
