What kind of bottles are y'all using for bubbly cider? Will glass mineral water bottles with their screw-on caps work, or will they 'splode?

personally I like bottles like the liter-sized swingtops just because of their character. If you just need to use what you have on hand, go ahead and try it, since they are at least proven to hold the carbonation pressure. might want to put all the bottles in a rubbermaid tub in case there's 'splosion, though.

Maybe you can use these Grain, Hops, Yeast Reference Charts

Quality beer bottles, I prefer Sam Adams, Long Trail, and Magic Hat, as long as they're not screw-tops.
