Why choose brown glass bottles?

The beer bottle glass color you choose for your homebrew will greatly impact its taste. Dark amber or brown glass greatly reduces UV light from spoiling the beer. Sure, any colored glass beer bottles filter out both visible and ultraviolet light. Brown glass blocks out more light than green, making it the optimal choice for bottling homebrew. Dark beers also absorb more light than light beers, making it essential to store stouts, bocks, and the like in brown bottles, while lighter beers can be stored in green bottles.

Since, clear glass beer bottles don't block any light, they are the least desirable choice for long term beer storage, with the exception of any specific beverage whose color was the primary characteristic you were trying to stress, such as a red ale.

EZ CAP

They work great, they're a little hard to get the caps on but they hold up and are easy to clean and reuse. I simply threw them into the dish washer and all sediment came out, but I still give them a good wipe down with a bottle brush to ensure there is not hidden surprises.

Nice, But There's A Cheaper Option

I bought a case of 16 oz. brown bottles with swing caps from Northern Brewer when I started home brewing. They worked great but when I needed another case to support my new brewing habit I found the same case with swing caps for $10 cheaper.

Quality bottles. Easy to use. Expensive.

The bottles and swing tops worked as advertised. The bottles are heavy and will made. The tops fasten tight and keep in the carbonation. I've had a couple flat bottles, but I can't tell if it was my mistake (poorly mixed priming solution, tops not straight, etc) or not. But overall I'm very happy with them. These bottles are expensive, though, and I would want better seals for anything I was aging for a long period of time. For bottling a batch of cider that needs to age for months, I purchased the regular bottles, caps, and a capping machine for half the price that the swing top bottles would cost.

The caps fit super tight, creating an awesome seal. I have bottle carbonated beer and cider without issues

Great bottles for mead in case you want to use one to periodically check on the aging.
