      I go to my local home brew supply shops.

      example:


      I can get a case of 1/2 gallon for $20. the only reason to buy them is the quality/re-usability of the lids.    Cork works great in recycled bottles from the grocery store..

      Looked a bit on the 'net and couldn't find anywhere to get 1/2 gallon or 1 gallon sized glass jugs.

      I saw places selling the half gallon for 13$.  which seems crazy since I can go to the local supermarket and get a half gallon glass jug full of apple cider for 5$ or 6$.

      Anyone know of a source?

        I should have done more googleing before submitting. Uline, while not the cheapest, has a local disto for will call. Gallons and half gallons are reasonable

            This may only apply to the area that I live in, deep south,  USA. We have a county recycle center. I get three litter glass  wine jugs with screw-on caps from the center clear glass recycle bin. Technically, I guess I am stealing them, however since I faithfully recycle about 80-90% of the waste that I generate,  eventually the jugs will be returned to the recycle center. No quite the same in my eyes.

            I use the 1/2 gallon Mason jars for storage and 1 quart size for collecting during distilling. All sizes available at most big stores - walmart or Ace etc.
