    Update

    I followed up on the lead regarding Hama bottles as a Jobo 1000 ml substitute. I think the original Jobo bottles are no longer available new and the used ones are pricey.

    I found them on this website in Germany:

    http://www.computeruniverse.net/info...ch/default.asp




    They are also pricey in US dollars but I tool the plunge and bought a dozen of them because shipping was a little better at that quantity. They arrived today. The are just like Jobo bottles. They fit perfectly in a CPP of TBE. The lids are wider which I think is better. I have not checked the lids for being spill-proof. So these are an excellent alternative to the Jobo 1000ml bottles and readily available. Thumbs up.

    I just tried the link myself and it does not work. I will try the link again:

    http://www.computeruniverse.net/info...e+1000ml+braun

    If the link does not work, it will nevertheless take you to the website and then paste this in the search box:

    Hama Flasche 1000ml braun

    As I recall, I had to do some labor to find these things.

    thanks Jerold, the link works now. These look identical to Jobo bottles 'cept for the lid and colour. Even has the ridges down the sides.

    The Jobo 1 litre bottles are still listed on the Firstcall website here in the UK, but they only list black ones in that size. They also list 600ml and 2 litre bottles as well, but I'd guess the shipping might be pretty expensive.

    Better fill them with wine.

    The cost for shipping 12 bottles from Germany to the USA was ~$30.
