Well guys, I am looking for wine bottles. Yes, it must be glass and yes, it should be good looking. Since my local homebrew store doesn’t carry them butI was told that it can be easily found in the backlanes of restaurants and cafes. However the problem is that I don’t have a car and it’s going to be a hassle for me to go around these places to look for bottles. Not to mention how to transport those wine bottles back home. Hey, it’s glass and taking the bus with glass bottles in your bag is going to attract a lot of attention and even some breakage. Don’t you just hate the sound of glass “clanking” together?

I was thinking of asking those recycling companies whether they will deliver those bottles. I have browsed through the ENA website and there are quite a number of companies dealing with recycled bottles. Again, the problem I foresee is that the amount of bottles I want is just too little for them to even bother. And what about the price of those recycled bottles? They would probably make way way more profit selling the bottles to bigger customers than delivering them to me.

Ahhh…too bad. It’s surprising that the “bottleneck” in me making some Apple Wine is the lack of wine bottles. Never did I expect the problem to be the bottles which is supposed to be something very common. But I guess if life is that easy, we would all be walking around with silly big smiles in our faces. And it makes life interesting.
