    Hi all!
    Today I made my first ever batch of glügg. It's pretty damn tasty. I thought it might be nice to hand it out as gifts, poorly homemade label and all. But where do you get bottles? Preferably with the screw-on caps. Now that Don's gone I'm not sure where to turn. It doesn't look like Alliance carries them. Thanks!

    Amazon carries them.

    Looks like you might have your answer! If instead of screw cap you might want hinged caps, I've seen them locally at Container Store, World Market, and Sur la Table.

    Here's a source for Grolsch swing-top bottles, which should work. If you really want to get into it, they offer traditional wine bottles, corks and corkers.

    Sure, swing-tops are fine too, I forgot about those. First stop World Market and Container Store, then Midwest. Thanks, guys!!

    Brew and Grow (and other home brew stores) should have them. See http://www.brewandgrow.com/brew/wine-ma ... tling.html. Locations listed here: http://www.brewandgrow.com/brew/retail-locations

    Forgot the obvious source of bottles ... just buy bottles of wine in screw-top bottles, and/or beers in swing-top bottles. Of course, you may have the burden of consuming the contents before rinsing them out and re-filling, but if you're really committed to the project ...

    Yep, those are what I was calling "hinged" in my above post
