Any advice for doing this in glass?
This is tricky, But here's what I have been doing. I bottle in 1 L flip top bottles (glass) that had sparkling lemonade soda in them. But I also bottle a plastic bottle to test. When the plastic is firm, they all go in the fridge.
Sometimes, I just let it sit for 2 days and hope it's enough.
I wouldn't do it with any bottle that wasn't made for carbonated drinks (like i would not use juice, decorative, spirits, etc. bottles.) especially not if they are really old.
