Subject: finding bottles and cases
Date: 1988-12-31 08:03:42 GMT

I'd like to put a slightly different twist on Richard Stern's request for
information on bottles. I've been using non-returnable, non-twist-off
bottles for a long time. Specifically, I use a combination of Anchor and
large Tooth's Sheaf Stout bottles--the Anchor bottles are the most space-
efficient I've found; the Tooth's bottles aren't bad, they match up, etc.
No troubles; the bottles have held up fine. And somehow I don't have any
trouble obtaining them (especially the Anchor bottles); they just seem to
keep showing up.

What I WOULD like to find is some source for cases to put them in for
carrying around, holding bottles during bottling, etc. Right now I'm using
the original cardboard cases. These would seem to be a source of dust and
a repository for bacteria and other beer buglies. It would be nice to find
either plastic carriers which fit the beer bottles and have dividers OR
some Q&D (well, not very D) way to make durable cases with a smooth
finish.
