Default Need advice quick!

So I'm about to bottle a 3 gallon batch...problem is I don't have a bottling bucket (i'm using it as a fermenter bc I got overjelous)

I've got a 3 gallon plastic water bottle I could use but I'm worried that with the priming sugar it'll be too much for the bottle....

Or I can sanitize my aluminum boil kettle and use it but I'm not sure if that is a good idea or not.....

what do you think I should do?

I've got my bottles soaking in sanitizer....need to do this tonight to help organize some stuff

THANKS

With only 3 gals you're not going to use more than 3 oz of Corn Sugar to prime your brew. You should have PLENTY of room in there.

Go for the 3 gal fermenter you have on hand...and go buy more equipment
tomorrow...but not another bottling bucket.

Have a few friends over for a few homebrews and ask for a donation, or charge them to use the cup. This way it is legal. (You can't sell homebrew without a permit) Then you can get anohter bucket!
