The holidays are coming and so is Anchor Christmas Beer in Magnums (1.5L). My local HEB is getting some of these and will set aside a couple of bottles for me.



I do believe you can recap this puppy.

There was another thread the other day about Lorrina (sp?) sparkling lemonade swing-top bottles... Grabbed one at Target for $4 since SWMBO and her offspring both like lemonade and I will keep the bottles... Also have a few friends that are 'good beer' lovers that are hording their substantial bottle collection for me instead of the recycler...

+1 on the cheap bigger bell.

American champagne* tends to take normal caps, and eurochampagne the 29mm caps.

* hey, America wasn't a signatory to that agreement because of prohibition, so if Americans want to call theirs champagne I have no problem with that.

Martinelli's Sparkling Cider comes in 750 ml bottles - they're green but they work good for beer. Just store them in a box out of the light.
