    Root beer bottles are not recommended because of the smell. I've used lots of Coke and Pepsi bottles and they've lasted for years. Because they are clear, keep them in the dark after bottling.

  14. Cold crashing your lbk significantly reduces the amount of trub in the bottles.
  15. And leave the lid on.
