5 litre glass bottles

Postby Arismac » Sat May 20, 2017 2:00 pm

Taking on board that storing high percentage ethenol in plastic is probably not a good idea, I have ordered two of these. Price seems quite reasonable. Are there other sources of large glass bottles?

They look cool but a 5L demijohn should only cost you $15-$20 at your local hbs

That's overkill for what u need. I quickly googled home brew shops over ur side and u can easy get 10l demijohn at that price :handgestures-thumbupleft: I pay $12.50 for 5l Demi's near me.
