I wouldn't. Some people worry that when the plastic is heated, it releases chemicals and toxins.

Not to mention, when you get it hot the bottle will be weaker and may fail.

If you got the room just throw it in the fridge, if not seriously get some bottles and a capper. My first beer was a mr. Beer with plastic bottles and I will NEVER do that again.

My Mr. Beer cider, and first cider batch ever, was actually pretty ok. A little yeasty, but good.

I just did a quick search on google on heating up PET bottles and came up with nothing conclusive. The FDA don't mention any heat thresholds, simply that the way that they transfer their fluids in PET bottles is safe and no chemicals "leak" into the fluids. If it were me, I wouldn't do it. Plastic in 190F water sitting on a metal pot just doesn't sound good
