I have wanted some of those bottle cans for awhile but would rather buy water than Bud. Today I was at Walmart and at the register coolers the had Mountain Dew in 16 oz bottle cans. I grabbed two so I could check cap size. They were on sale for .75 ea., normally $1.50 ea. Needless to say I bought a case($18). Just thought I would let everyone know about them before they're all gone. They are the right cap size. At this price I think they are trying to clear them out.

I drank 2 cases of Mountain Dew for the Aluminum Cans.
Problem I have is I refuse to bottle Home Brew in those ridiculous Modern art bottles. so until I make friends with a sand blaster, They sit in the basement.

if you have an air compresser, HF has a $30 portable sandblaster. Or you can get an air blower with a velocity stack and run the velocity stack through a small bottle of sand. the holes in the velocity stack will pick up the sand(especially if you shake it a little when using) its ghetto but it works.

yes aluminum bottles with crown caps. Take them any where glass is not allowed(lakes, beaches, state parks), ship them without fear of breakage, and lighter.

As long as your using a bench capper, I don't see why not. I unfortunately only have a crappy wing capper, not good for threaded bottles.
