I took a look last night and they actually hold 20 bottles

I bottle in 500ml Hacker Pschorr swing tops and find that 12-750ml wine boxes work just fine. They're free from the liquor store.

How do the boxes hold up when they get wet during bottling or after washing the bottles?
I prefer a forever solution and 6.99 a box isnt alot of money.

I have also been using Milk crates for Grolsh, as stated they hold exactly 16, but only the latest slim bottles, the older ones I have slowly been replacing as you cannot get close to 16, unless you use a mix of the old and new.
