i was wondering if anyone knew if the blue bottles provided any sunlight protection for the beer or if its just decorative. i know brown is the most protective but i'm kindda digging the blue, but if it doesn't protect thats a lot of money i'd be wasting. i was also wondering if there are any down sides to the ez cap bottles in the first place? i am using the PET bottles that came with my kit and will do so until i feel comfortable with the priming sugars and carbonation process. thanks again you guys

Decorative and very little protection.

Depends on the price you put on aesthetics.

Price only. You can find them at yard sales as I have for pennys each.
