Or you can get a brand new one and fill it with home brew for less than a tenner.

Oh, yes. They carb up nicely and hold the carbonation well.They give a lovely pop, just like a champagne cork when opening. As you can see from my link, thet're swing tops, so lock down tight

True, however if you're getting 5 litres of good beer for an extra 3 or 4 quid that's a bargain. I bought a couple of shipyard pale ales at 11 quid recently. It he the added bonus of me being able to leave 10 litres of my own stuff alone, meaning my stock has increased slightly. I do tend to polish most brews off before they're any more than couple of months old.
