Hi all,
I am new to home brewing and enjoying learning about the whole brewing process.
One of the biggest things I have noticed is the change from drinking from stubbies to drinking from bottles with beer glasses.
So I have been looking at other opions like smaller bottles.
I have noticed that Coopers does 500ml PET bottles in the UK market.
Why are these bottles not available in Australia?

Hi JB, welcome to the forum. I'm fairly new to all this as well.
I'm only guessing here but it may be because in the UK they tend to drink Pints which I think are around 500ml. We tend to drink schooners and get 2 of them from a 740ml PET bottle.
Cheers, Dave.

That and traditionally the only bottle size there was in Australia was the 750mL tallies. Stubbies are a relatively recent thing on the market.

And 500mL bottle sizes don't work well with Coopers carb drops
