I have started seeing a lot of the new 16 ounce aluminum bottles
around. I notice that they have a pry off lid rather than a screw off
top. A standard (Brewers best) cap seems to fit them just like a 12
ounce glass long neck. Has anyone tried bottling with these yet?

I have tried to re-cap them and with a bench capper they work, I haven't
tried refilling them, I would think that the cleaning salutions would
oxidize the aluminum.

The can is almost surely coated in some way. Most all cans are these
days.

I may not be the brights bulb on the porch, but, if they work, clean them
with something that wont oxidize them.

And so what if it did?
