There was a great kombucha thread floating around here somewhere, and I mentioned this question, but it seems to have gotten lost in the discussion. My first batch of Kombucha is brewing now and I think I might be able to bottle in 4 or 5 days. I do not have swing top bottles. I do, however, have old commercial kombucha bottles (and their caps), old glass jars (also with lids), and empty beer and wine bottles (without tops or corks, obviously). I was hoping I'd be able to use the jars or old kombucha bottles in a pinch. But I am afraid of explosions as the kombucha carbonates. Do I need swing top bottles? If so, anyone know a good, cheap resource for them?
I don't own a scale and don't care to!
