    putting your mouth on something porous that was bathed in fixer and then heating it up ...

    Are your friends and relatives that stupid? Perhaps you should review your choice of house-sitter! :-)

    Soup is better in a chamber pot

    Adds flavor so good as it will put a sh_t eating grin in your face.

    But seriously, I think bottles are so cheap, why reuse them?

    For years when I was a kid, I thought Peter Pan was a reference to a chamber pot!

    If they were glass, I might but why?
    If they are plastic, I am kinda sure it will be fine... that said why would you want to risk rotten-egg overtones in your beer regardless?
    It would be the taste I would be most worried about.... isn't that the point of messing about with home brew... certainly it's not cheaper than cans of Heiniekin that is pretty cheap and tasty here in the USA.

    Is there a way to suspend users for a month that start threads like this?!?!?!?


    I know two of you are going to say "ignor" the thread... I say it clutters up the forum for useful conversation and discourse.

    You may get them clean enough to not be a danger (you probably will), but the chance of off tastes should deter you. Most plastic isn't great for beer anyway.

    Simple test. Next time you make beer, use clean bottles. Nothing recycled from the darkroom. Offer your guests a choice of two bottles. Say, "this one is from a bottle I used for chemicals in my darkroom for a couple of years. This bottle is new". See which bottle they pick.

    For those that don't know, Grolsch bottles are about 15 ounces, made of heavy glass, and have ceramic flip-tops.
    f/22 and be there.

    Please change your user name from BetterSense to NoSenseAtAll.

    What part of no upside, endanger your health, lose your friends, and spoil the taste do you not understand?
