Extract Surface

I am thinking of another method but don't have SWX on this machine to try.
Cut off the bottle at fluid line. Insert into solid box. Split bottle from box. Delete outer disjointed solid. The remaining solid will be internal volume of the bottle.
That seems to be much easier than selecting a bunch of faces to offset zero or delete (especially on a complex shape typical of many bottles these days). But again, I haven't tried exactly that. Yet.
If you could post an example bottle I'll give it ago when I get back to work Monday.

PS. Giving it a few more minutes of thought I bet using the Mold tools would make this a trivial exercise. Post your bottle file.
