thanks for info
yes, but not if you keep them out of the light, which should be done anyway. i've used clear bottles a couple of times and never had a problem. everything stays in my brew closet, which only sees the tiniest bit of light when i'm grabbing something out of it.
a couple commercial brewers use green bottles and they don't protect as well as the brown bottles. try a Heineken or a Pilsner-Urkel from a green bottle and you can taste the skunk a bit. then try one of the mini kegs of Heineken and you'll see the difference.
i'm sure there's much more info on the forums too. try searching "skunk light green clear" or something
