Default Help! Bottling day is tomorrow and I dont...

...have enough bottles for my 5 gallon batch!

I bought some 8 1-Liter twist off beer bottles, but my Northern Brewer instructions say not to use twist off bottles


What do i do? I have about 15 or so regular beer bottles but that's not near enough


What do I do? Can I put them in cork bottles?

Your beer is in a sealed vessel. Leave it there until you get more bottles, kegs. Don't be impatient- who says you have to bottle tomorrow?

So no to the cork bottles and screw ons?

gobraves1090,

Wish you lived closer. You would have a couple hundred bottles in short order.

Just relax- the beer only gets better with time. How long has it been in the carboy/ bucket?

I brewed on December 28, so tomorrow would be 3 weeks since brew day. I guess I do need to let it sit more anyway.

Just order a couple cases online. Should only take a few days to get them. There's a thread on the forum here where people give away their bottles, I got 3 cases from a guy that was only 10 min away from me. All free.
