    Reusing Grolsch bottles

    I like to save money on purchasing bottle crowns and a capers, so I thought about reusing Grolsch bottles. My question is: Do I need to purchase a new seal or can I just reuse the bottle has is?

    The one the bottle has is fine. I'm personally using them as water bottles.
    Two ciders please, I'm thirsty!

    On deck: Soon Cider
    Fermenting: None
    bottled: Old and dusty something rathers
    Secondary: None
    Kegged: Carbonated Water (enjoying home made soda syrups)

    I used grolsch bottles for years and had no issues with them. I did buy a new set of washers for some of them, they were as cheap as a bag of crowns and have lasted for many years.

    +2. I've used the Grolsch bottles for years as well. I've never changed the seals or anything.

    Thanks. I am going to attempt to make my very first batch and the only thing that has held me up is bottling the beer after it is done.
