Default Can i use these bottles?

Hey All,
Been a while since being in here, just got back online today. Since i just moved again, i have to buy everything again. I had my own set up plus mr beer. They say we can use plastic PET bottles and reuse the caps. I got an 18 pack of coors light, 16 ounce brown plastic bottles, can i use them to bottle my beer? Are they PET plastic? I like them better, lighter and more convenient. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

yep you can use them. I know you can get new caps if you want to.

I've never seen those before but it sound like they would work. Can you post a photo of them?

I've seen them all the time at amusement parks, baseball stadiums, etc. Anywhere they don't want glass or the spill worries of cans.

Hello,
I don't know if i can post a pic or not. I am using this msntv2 thing, not a regular computer. I know i can upload pics from my memory card to my-email and send it that way. If you want, i will take a couple pics and can e-mail them to you? Let me know. These would be perfect i think. Thanks.

These will work...after all...they came with Beer in them.
The trick is to check the bottom...Look for the recycle symbol and make sure it has a 1 or a 2 in it. 3 or more, Don't use.
I'm sure someone will post a link to the discussion on plastic types when we were talking about using "Deep Rock" Bottles as fermentors.
