Can I Use 40 oz Bottles For Homebrew?

Question:

I’ve been collecting  40 ounce bottles with the screw on caps for my homebrew, so wondering if this is will be okay for bottling?

I Currently have approximately 10-15 gallons already bottled up in a storage building outside that’s been there about 2 months now but I don’t plan to drink it until hot weather arrives.

Answer:

I have never used the screw top bottles myself but I have heard that it can be hard to get them to seal right. I have heard from others though that have used them in the past with no problems.

Given the potential for seal issues, I would take the extra step to add some teflon tape to the bottle before capping to provide it an even tighter seal…
