comment Types of bottles I can use for beer
I am new to home brew and went with brown plastic as recommended by my local home brew shop. The first batch is fine - however I like others have said below have questions over its long term re-usability. I intend to continue making ale so therefore won't ever put too high a pressure into my bottles - but I do worry about cleaning the bottles sufficiently without scratches being created.

comment Reusing twist-off bottles
oh really. I just invested in 2 packs of bottles for my first home brew. Very dissapointed if when it comes to re-use I get seal failures. I was advised in my local home brew shop that PET bottles are preferable to glass in all ways except romanticism.
