    need help with used wine bottles

    my wife demanding I start making mead and after looking into it i feel i would like to give it a try
    my issue is the cost of the reusable bottles being at $18 to even 56$ a bottle
    so my question is can i simple reuse old wine bottles?
    i don't see no difference between empty bottles they sell and the ones that was pre-filled but i thought I'll ask first in hope someone here might know

    also if this is the wrong section please move to the proper one

    I reuse beer bottles when I make beer. So I do not see why you could not just do the same for mead. Just make sure you sanitize them.

    On Craigs list I scored about 200 bottles of Grolsch beer bottles, a must have for beer brewing, and of course you can buy them new from any home brew supply.
