Can Ball jars be used for "bottling" homemade beer and wine?

New lids and for a short shelf life.  Is there any reason not to?

PSI-pounds per square inch.  The force on a cork or bottle top (aprox 1 square inch) multiplied by 7 or 8? for the huge difference in area.  Ball jar lids are built to seal a negative pressure-to keep air (and bacteria) out, not in.
Yup. You'd most likely wind up with beer everywhere, and maybe shards of glass too. Besides, Mason jars are for moonshine....
