Yeah they are a bit pricey, I bought mine about 20 years ago for considerably less.

Nice to have around from time to time. It is a bit taller, but certainly not enormous compared to the 16. Not going to make a big difference when in storage. And since it takes a little time to run a batch from heat up to cool down, the more jars you can cram in there the better. More than likely, you'll get the first one and wish you had two.
Will 1/2 gal jars fit in the 16?

It occurs to me, use 800 ML instaed of a quart or a liter, but make the starter wort stronger, so you can add 200 ML of water.
So instead of a starter wort OG of 1.03 - 1.04 use 1.05 and dilute
