PET Bottles

Not doing glass.

 

Are Oxygen 740ml bottles worth the extra cost over regular PET bottles, if you don't intend to condition longer than a year ?

 

Are Oxygen 740ml bottles worth the extra cost just for their durability ?

 

How do you prep/clean PET bottles to be reused.

 

Thanks

Thanks, currently that are my thoughts.

Inquiring before I jump in with both feet, and buy

enough bottles for a pipeline to sustain my drinking.

Regular PET brown bottles are fine. I rinse them after the beer is done, shake with a few drops of dish washing liquid, rinse and repeat. As Rickbeer said, sanitize before filing. BTW - let them dry and store without the caps on (unless you like mold).

Agree with Rick and Brian N.  Been using the PET bottles for 3 years and have had no issues.

 

Best of luck!

Been buying the oxygen barrier bottles all along so I don’t get em mixed up. Really not needed?  Even for the 12 + month conditioning brews?

I've stored for as long as 1 1/2 years in regular plastic w/o problem many times. I really don't know what the oxygen barrier bottles are for. Maybe there's people who store forever?

 Thanks,  I may never need to buy more but if I do I'll save some money on them.
