Your bottling project will go much quicker with new bottles. All you do is rinse and sterilize. Think how nice it would be to speed bottle a few 5 gallon batches and get all caught up. You are going to need those secondaries emptied out very soon… These bottles are brand new and have never had anything in them but air!
You will need five of these bottles for one US gallon. For a 5 gallon batch you can get by with just these two cases plus one or two of your spare bottles. These bottles are reuseable and you will enjoy them for years and years to come, yet they are cheap enough to give to your friends full of your great homemade wine and not count on getting them back!
