Some non-returnable bottles do work. Anchor Steam bottles seem to be a
favorite. I've placed some heavily carbinated meads (1 cup priming/5
gal.) and never had trouble with them.

If your area has a recycling center, they might have various bottles
for sale. Another source is other homebrewers. Many of us seem to
save bottles in the belief that we might suddenly be taken with an
urge to quadruple our brewing.
