Why not do the following: Build a Geek Group style beer bottle bucket cap
with the brown bottles you have. Measure your coil's performance.
Later, rebuild the cap with clear Corona beer bottles and compare
results. I used for two years a bucket cap made with Corona bottles, and
it worked nearly as well as the MMC that eventually replaced it.
Corona bottles are narrow, and have a nice skinny neck which I believe
keeps "Corona" losses down.

I read a post the other day that mentioned caps using dark bottles heating
up. Is there any real difference between clear and brown bottles? I am
about to make a Geek Group cap and all I have is brown bottles. If I need
clear bottles I will have to suffer and drink more beer. The things we
will do to build a coil! :-)) Sill cheeper than building a mmc. That will
be in the future.
