I wouldn't do it. They're really designed to be used once. Many years ago Coors offered quarts with a wide mouth screw top. I found I got one or two bottlings out of them before the caps got distorted and started to leak. My favorite bottle is the swing top, because I can reuse them practically indefinitely and after bottle conditioning I can quickly release the pressure and flush out any oxygen in the neck, which helps the beer last longer. I got my by bottles by haunting the bottle recycle center, and from friends who drink Fischer 660cl.

I agree with Robert, I would not try to use them.

On your next batch try 2 or 3 Coors cans. Then let us know what happens a month later. I would have to agree they won't work well but who knows.

Hmmm, I don't know if the beer can/bottles are similar to the soda can/bottles. I've successfully bottled using a Diet Coke Aluminum (Al-you-minium, to my UK pals...) bottle, that I'd bought in Manhattan. I'm about to try the same thing with a Coors Light Al., bottle that I dumped.
