I was walking past the imported beer row in the supermarket, as you do. I saw an over priced 473mL (yes 473, weird number I know), bottle of Grolsch Premium Lager (swing top) beer from Holland. I brought it more for its looks then anything else, as it was pretty high in price considering.
After I consumed it (and very nice too BTW), it got me thinking about the swing top. Why isn't it used much? The beer was well carbonated. Does anyone use these bottles, or others similar for homebrew? Is there any reason why you couldn't?
The swing top needed a decent amount of pressure to tighten, so should have a good seal. I was thinking of trying one instead of a PET bottle...
