    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    OTOH, Newcastle brown ale is not bad at all and comes in clear bottles.

    And, I think Newcastle Brown may even have some staining effects on the negs.

    Does it mean that Guinness has strong staining effects?

    Yes, and maybe Mackeson Triple Stout too.

    My favourite local lab and museum of camera equipment (I say this because they have tonnes of old photo gear all priced WAY above anything I've ever seen so I'm pretty sure they just want to hold on to it) usually save up a pile of odds and ends that turn up from their store room or are dropped off by other customers who simply don't require said object anymore - I've picked up some amber glass bottles there and, though I don't think they're crucial, they certainly have a nice weight about them and are just generally nicer to handle than plastic......to state the obvious.

    So yeah, I'd say ask around locally - shipping glass bottles is annoying - particularly as they're not a very valuable item to begin with.

    If you have to store your developer in the bathroom or some other place like this,then amber bottles will be the best choice for you. You can get them from your local chemist else you can order it online also.

    Miller High Life is invariably packaged in completely enclosed cartons, thereby shielded from the light.

    Other beers use junky old brown bottles.
