Default Homebrewing question

A quick question, before I make a fool of myself at my local Homebrew shop.

In the UK I bottled my homebrew in pint bottles and when it was ready poured it into a pint glass in 1 go (so as not to disturb the sediment).

Here the bottles are 750 ml. So what are you supposed to do? Pour it into a jug and then into a pint glass? Or are there 750 ml glasses?

Please don't say bottle it in stubbies, its twice the work!

Cheers,
JTL

I don't suppose drinking from the bottle is a good idea then

Sorry can't help.
but i did find this "amusing" quote about Homebrewing:

Homebrewing is something for the whole family, the kiddies can wash the bottles, the spouse can clean up and you can drink it!

If you want pints; use coke bottles . It's enough to pour two pints if you are drinking them with someone.
I use plastic coke ,1.25 litre bottles - two pints is around 1.140 Litres ( I'm rounding 568ml to 570) . So these bottles are perfect for two pints and only a little swig is left over in the bottle .. which tends to be the sediment anyway.

I tend to use these coke bottles instead of putting them in glass bottles and capping them ,as I have had caps blowing off in the past and hitting the roof ..lol ( I always double the sugar content - lethal)

Well I found a forum on Aussie homebrewing !!!

http://www.aussiehomebrewer.com/forum/

Excellent. I shall bother this forum no longer with my beer related problems

Oh Ceri, the one thing worse than having the lids blow off, is when the beer hits the roof when you open the bottle. I had to repaint a kitchen ceiling after one particular batch kept exploding when I opened it,

Cheers,
