Re-using soda bottles?

Recommended Posts

Is there any one out there who has bottled beer in repurposed plastic soda bottles. I was thinking about using some brown plastic root beer bottles. I know there is an issue with getting out the smell. Are the bottles adequate for home bottling? Thought I would check for horror stories or success stories. Thanks

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.

I used a 12 oz coke bottle for my last a.k.a. trub bottle. Helps me see what's going on inside.
