Subject: bottling in plastic 2 liter bottles

I don't know about beer, but for Mead, those bottles are right
out--apparently the alcohol can leach some flavor from them even
though acidic soft drinks apparently don't (or maybe we've been
trained to expect that flavor in our soft drinks). It is not a strong
flavor, and I suppose you could bottle something you weren't planning
on aging and were going to feed to people who have no
discrimination--but from reading these digests, I have strongly gotten
the opinion that Beer is much harder to make than Mead, and far too
much trouble to give to anyone who is incapable of spotting the taste
of plastic.
