Default What size drilled stopper for 1.75 bottle?

Hey all I was making a starter in a 22oz bottle tonight and I looked in the recycle bin and there was a 1.75 jug that used to have a little Captain in it . ... the brain started working, but I don't have a stopper that will fit. Anyone have an idea which number to grab on my next order?

It would be one size larger than most bartender pourers.

Yeast like oxygen to reproduce. sanitize a small bit of foil and fit loosely over the top.

Good call guys, thanks.

I guess that is exactly what this experiment was about:
