from Northern Brewer:
These are literally $1 cheaper than Better Bottle on Northern Brewer’s website. What’s the point?
Awesome logo? 🙂
orange peel texture on the bottom and everything, wow these things might actually be identical to better bottles.
I see now that it’s the reflection from the neck, but I thought there was some sort of built-in air-lock inside towards the top….
do yourselves a favor and buy a Nestle or Poland Spring “EcoSense” 5 gallon water bottle. Ecosense uses the exact same PET-E plastic Better Bottles and this thing do. They cost about 11 bucks filled (usually 6 for the water and 5 for the deposit).
Use them until they get banged up, return for the deposit and get a brand new one.
I have 10 of them for secondary, small batch primary, or fermenting things that have little to no krausen.
On northern brewer these are actually slightly cheaper than better bottle brand.
A better bottle by any other name is still overpriced.
How is this different from a BetterBottle?
sweet…a simple #1 PET bottle with new branding and marked up 300%
