Default For Sale - SWAP -- 3 gallon cooler for aluminum bottles

I wanted to sell my 3 gallon cooler (Rubbermaid) that I used for a few years for partial mashes. The cooler has had the spigot added back on it and so it will need a manifold or better yet a SS braid (that's what I used and it was perfect for this.) If you want it without a swap, $15+ shipping.

Instead of selling it, though, I would be willing to swap it for 12-24 aluminum bottles (that I can cap.) I haven't ever used or seen these bottles to tell you the truth, so I am not sure they are capped or screw on bottles. If screw on, I don't want them. I need them for shipping purposes for brews I have to make for someone. If someone knows where I can get them for free, that would be great too!

Edit: please reply to this thread instead of PM, please. I will get in touch when I can. Thanks!

The blue Miller aluminum bottles are pop-off and cappable. The only down-side is you have to buy Miller Light. It's kind of a walk of shame.

As a point of order: I think you need a bench capper for the aluminum bottles. The red-wing capers won't work. Can anyone confirm? I have used them with my bench-capper in the past.

I have one at the house - I'll try using my wing capper tonight if I remember.

yuk, that's why I was hoping someone had some they were willing to part with.

You are correct. The Bud Lite aluminum bottle does not work with a wing capper. The bottlecap fits on it fine, though, so a bench-capper definitely will work.
