No, these aren't the 3 gallon version of Better Bottles. This is what happens when your hop sack develops a leak, dumps them into the boil pot, and your chiller gets clogged. Then, while common sense was taking a leak in the side lot, you just go ahead and pump into the fermentors.

Not mine (seriously). My friend's.

I think they would make lovely garden fountains. Sorry...a Martha Stewart moment.

Just put them into the oven for a few minutes and then blow them back up to size.
