Do not forget Orval bottles.... They deff can hold high pressure. Also the Sierra 30th anniv/ Life& Limb bottles that are corked are almost identical to JP bottles.

No prob whatsoever capping the JP bottles with a red winged capper. I just did 10 yesterday. Just go slow and it works perfect everytime.

Agreed, I bottle w/ JP bottles and haven't had a capping issue.

Just wanted to reiterate that champagne bottles and Belgian bottles take different size corks. I used the plastic champagne corks to bottle a sour beer and discovered that they were much to small for the Belgian bottles I had been stockpiling. They fit fine in the few champagne bottles I had.

They do but if you use corks you can just buy the larger sized 25.5mm corks for the Ommegang-style bottles and bottle in both champagne and belgian bottles. If you buy only 23.5mm you won't be able to bottle in the Ommegang-style bottles. The champagne bottles are tighter but not to the point that I can't get the cork out. Plus I only tend to bottle my 3ish volume and higher beers in the heavier bottles. The carbonation will greatly assist in cork removal.
