Recycling Screw-Cap Bottles


New Member
In our family, we love our wine, but always threw out or recycled our bottles, but now I'm into wine making can I get away with keeping these bottles to re-use for home made wine?
It sounds like a silly question but all the wine making resources I've come across refer to corked bottles instead of screw cap.
Do the screw caps wear out eventually or can I re-use these bottles?
If so I plan on soaking them in warm water to remove the labels and making my own.


As long as you can get a good seal I can't see why it would be an issue. You may have to replace the seal ring in them.
