    Would an empty 5 or 6 gallon water bottle be innapropriate for home brewing? As they're only a $5 - $8 deposit in most places. I'd imagine food grade also, perhaps they'd permit oxygen intrusion?

    I personally wouldn't recommend using a cheap over the counter water bottle, but you'd be surprised what some people brew in. It is possible to make beer in trash cans, but with each thing you skimp on you run the risk of contaminating your batch. When you spend months preparing something you want to eliminate as much risk as possible so you don't waste time and money. My recommendation would be glass carboys, but these better bottles have their perks, weight being one. This is a very good deal though and it is nice if you can have at least two carboys. Midwest is a trusted supplier in the brewing community too. Cheers to whatever you decide.
