Yo brewers,
Just wanted to let anyone who hasn't tryed them, and uses there own used bottles to know that I've used some of the Guiness bottles with the shrink wrap lable. They're awsome. The widget pulls right out with pliers, and the shrink wrap pulls right off. They seem a little light, but like I said I've used them a couple of times with no problems.
"Yeah it is!"

Drinking : First brew - Nut Brown Ale, Avery - Brown Ale, Red Hook - ESB, New Belgium - 1554 Black Ale (Favorite, need recipe)
Primary : 'Jeramiah Red' Clone
Carbonating : Shiner Clone
Carbonating : Elbro Nerkte

I use these as well........I've got just about 100 of them and they are just a nice bottle to look at. And since the label is skrink wrapped you can cut it off instead of washing.

I'm not a stout drinker, but a buddy of mine is so he was nice enough to switch from the cans to the bottles so I could have enough to bottle.

I've had no problems with breaking during capping and no sealing problems. I agreed they seem a bit light but with the bench capper they work great
