Have you ever considered champagne bottles. Yes, they're a bit larger
(25.4 oz) but they certainly can handle the pressure. Champagne can
reach 90P.S.I.. And they have a nice shoulder at the lip, so normal
bottle caps work nicely. If you frequent a restaurant or live near a
place that has one of those Sunday Morning Champagne Brunchs, you may
have a ready source of large bottles. If you frequent a place and
getting to know the staff it makes it easier to ask for their empties.
This past New Years Party at a small local restaurant netted me 2
cases. The current batch of Gingered Ale in the fermentor is destine
for these critters.

Although, I can not profess being the orginator of this idea. I
believe I picked this idea up out of a recent issue of Zymurgy.
