Aus Deutschland...

Twenty (20) half liter brown German flip-top beer bottles with handy dandy sturdy plastic rack. Bottles contained Hefeweizen from the Dinkelacker-Schwaben Bräu brewery in Stuttgart, Germany, http://www.schwabenbraeu.de . Bottles were emptied circa 2008 and contents were outstanding.

Following emptying of the bottles each bottle received a warm water bath to remove the labels and wash out the residual yeast. Bottles were then inverted and air dryed.

These bottles are very uncommon for the United States and can be reused with little effort for homebrewing. No need for disposable bottle caps that get thrown away. Using flip-top bottles for homebrewing helps reduce your carbon footprint (every little bit helps...). The glass is brown in color which is ideal for all non- skunked beers.

Note: Green and white bottles are designed for skunked Bier.

GrüÃY Gott .

P.S.: T is a problem with the shipping calculator for this item. The package dimensions are: 17" x 14" x 13" and weighs 24 lbs. A similar item was shipped previously in a slightly larger box to zip code 63965 for the least expensive rate of $21.26.

P.P.S.: A return trip to the local post office gives another rate for shipping. I found that USPS online gives a rebate for online postage purchasing. So, in order to give you the least expensive shipping options:
