Ok, I swear I've searched for this and I thought I had actually seen something about this before but I couldn't find what I want to know.

I want to ship 2 standard glass bottles to a homebrew competition. This is in Canada so I don't need a tutorial about the legality of this practice. I just need to know what the most efficient way to pack 2 (not 12) bottles might be.

Cheers.

If you're only shipping two bottles re-using shipping tubes works well. You can cut them down to fit your needs. Wrap bottle in bubble wrap until it's a snug fit in the tube. Be sure to cushion ends and between bottles with more bubble wrap.

If you have a food saver, I'm an advocate for sealing up the bottles in that before the padding.

This worked great when AnOldUR sent me two bottles in a SMaSH swap.

Still hanging onto the tube Herm. :D
