Default Best Bottles for Holding Carbination Repeatedly ? ?

I have three different types of bottles:

1. Craft bottle beers.

2. Plastic bottles with screw tops.

3. Grolsch style bottles with swing caps.

I've been using all of them on the same batch. At first, all of them held carbonation equally, then they became less reliable.

Guess which type of bottle has stood the test of time and still carbs every bit as good today as it did a year ago?

Good guess, but no.

BTW, Milwaukee had a cryptosporidium problem with their water a while back. People died! Protip: boil your water. You never know what's in it.

even brewing back to back. drinking and rebottling the same day, none of the 3 should be failing in a year.

Have you replaced the gaskets on the swing tops?

They all hold carbonation still. One of them consistently provides the desired level of carbonation while the other two aren't as reliable.

I spelled carbonation wrong in the thread title.

I haven't needed to. The swing top bottles are giving me the most consistent carbonation out of the three.

Again, the others are holding carbonation, but tend to finish a little flatter and some of them a lot flatter. I haven't had any that wouldn't carbonate.

The swing tops have been perfect every time and provide a satisfying THUNK when I open them.
