    Reusing chemical bottles for food

    I have 4 Grolsch bottles that I used to use for fixer. Now that I am brewing my own beer, I would like to use them for beer. I think that since they are glass, there should be no problem if I wash them out well and put new gaskets on the lids. But then I wanted to see what other people thought just in case.

    I think a very bad idea.

    And also using food bottles for chemicals too.

    BTW: Grolsch is situated in Holland and even I am using Schott chemical bottles for putting in chemicals.

    If you will have an accident by swapping food and chemicals and children are involved you will never ask this again.

    Dear BetterSense,

    My brain tells me you should have no problem. My gut tells me bottles are cheap enough to just get new ones. I have nothing really to stand on here, but I wouldn't re-use them.

    Follow your name, and have better sense than to put your beer in your old chemical bottles.

    Wow!
    I've always thought all the warnings on things were a bit excessive. As your friends finish those bottles of beer, tell them what was stored in them beforehand. Make sure your health insurance is up to date first.

    Ditto. Why reuse them? You can buy new bottles for pretty cheap. And if you don't want to buy empty ones, go buy a couple filled with beer. Enjoy the beer and now you have new bottles.

    It is sooo much better to buy fresh ones and empty the contents into the appropriate recepticle(belly) and reuse for more beer.

    The thing is I don't like Grolsch and I don't even know where to buy it.
