This is true but with shipping it ends up to be the same for me ...I can buy a case for 25$ and while I'm up there I I go buy whole foods and get my cider

I always hit up my local bottle return center. I am up to almost 5 full cases of 16oz German flip top style bottles. Dark brown glass with straight sides so I can label them. 10 cents a piece sure beats $2.50 at my LHBS.

I stop by my local liquor store and grab a Grolsch or two every week....I get to drink the beer, and have an awesome bottle to re-use.

Nevermind the fact that I've been grabbing a Grolsch or two a week for years, and am just getting back into brewing after many years since the last batch.

I just stopped by my local bottle depot. Paid $30 a dozen for brown grolsh bottles from my HBS. Bought 30 emerald green ones, a dozen cobalt blue wine bottles and a gallon jug at bottle depo for $13.

Just a local bottle depo. No website. Just find one locally and ask if they sell.

If anyone is near me in central NC, I have 30ish Fischer flip-tops. I'll make somebody a deal.

You must have gasket issues, I pretty much use them exclusively for wines, meads and ciders. Carbed or still.
