Random Thought: Drinking for the Bottles

Several months ago I stopped in Columbus at a home-brew supply store and purchased a kit to brew some Scottish Ale. I have a bottle capper and the other needed equipment but lacked any non-twist off cap bottles. So, I picked up a couple of six-packs of imported beer and began saving bottles. I now have more than enough bottles to begin brewing but I think I’m having more fun just buying different kinds of beer and saving the empties.

  1. Hmm, during my nearly three weeks in Russell, Kansas, hometown of Bob Dole, someone brought some old-fashioned Grolsch bottles to a get-together involving my then host family, although *sigh* I didn’t get to partake of one of ’em; sighing because I used to love Grolsch.

  2. Would empty Grolsch bottles with their fangled (I didn’t know if “newfangled,” was appropriate, since they look old fashioned) cap-thingies facilitate the making of home brew?
