Glad to hear everything will be ok. So now that the shiz storm has passed..

Did you say she wears one of those tennis skirts when she plays tennis? Or does she wear a regular skirt? Maybe go panty-less?

Whatever she's wearing, you're taking pictures, right?

If you were going to buy some commercial beer and had a choice between SNPA which is twist off, or another similar beer that had pry off tops, which would you, as a homebrewer, buy?

Even though I don't bottle, the fact that I might like to use the beer gun to bottle a few would weigh into my purchasing decision, and I'd likely buy the beer with the pry off tops, just in case.

I really wonder if many microbreweries are returning to pry off to get the business of homebrewers!?

Oye, my rotating stock of empties hovers around 6 cases. I stopped stressing about bottles long, long ago. I used to collect 'em like it was goddamned job, but now, if I bring my brew out to a friend's house or something, the only ones I'll bother to bring back are large format bottles....if it's a 12oz'er, bah, recycle it.

Somehow I doubt that micros are basing their decisions on the relatively small class of homebrewers, though. It's probably got more to do with the cost of bottling.

I have been leaning towards pop tops since I started brewing for that reason alone.

I'm guessing its more about image. Pop top are seen more as distancing themselves from the twist top BMC beers. After all micro brews come in pop top bottles, right? Same reason that winerys continue to use corks instead of screw tops despite the fact that there appears to be no difference in taste (with the possible exception of high end wines aged for years).
However when I do buy commercial beers, I will usually make sure they are brown pop top bottles, unless there is a good reason not to.
