I have only ever used brown and I have not used twist off.  But I guy I know has used the twist off's with no problem.

You can order bottle on line from several places or the LHBS should have them.

Never had any luck with twist offs. If you over carbonate, which we all have done from time to time, there's a possibility the caps will blow off. The best way to get freebie bottles is from your local tavern. Or if you have a tavern, resturant or sandwitch shop in your area that sells and serves imports and speciality beers you can get pints and 22 ounce bottles. That's where all of mine came from.
