Yes and yes. I made a batch of cider which is VERY lively and was
bottled in 2 and 1.5 litre plastic bottles. This stuff has kept
for over a year now, no explosions or anything like that. Its al-
most impossible to remove the caps though without a hacksaw or
some other cap removing gadget (I use one of those high friction
mats for standing telephones on!). I don't think glass bottles
would have survived the amount of pressure that has built up in-
side these plastic bottles.
