Default Sold - WTB: Looking for a couple empty White Labs vials...

Found some from another member.

I will keep those preforms in mind in the future if I need a lot of them!

I got a few. Gotta dump out the 4 year old yeast and pull the labels and they're yours.

Just some food for thought. The White labs vials would work, and certainly fit the theme, but they are fairly thick plastic, and would be a bit slow responding to temperature changes. I use a small glass container that Trader Joes spices come in. I don't know that it will make a huge difference in the long run, but I thought the glass would be better at reacting to temp changes than the thick plastic of the White Labs vial.

White Labs gives you stuff with the vials as proof of purchase

eg, 10 vials gets you a free vial of yeast.

These things can be bought cheaply from many different sources.

You may or may not be aware of this, but ever wonder why these "vials" use the same caps as soda bottles? It's because they ARE soda bottles - or more precisely, soda bottle pre-forms. Companies buy them like this, and then they get heated up and have air blown into them to expand the pre-forms into full-sized bottles.
