Default 11.2 oz bottles?

I want to bottle what I'm hoping will be my best beer to date, 11%+ RIS. I want to use 11.2 oz bottles and dip in wax to assist with aging. I've looked around and haven't found a vendor... help? SWMBO loves this beer but its very unlikely she will drink 40 by the time its ready to be bottled.

Moretti is 11.2 and I like their bottle better than that one...pretty cheap too. Sorry, that is all I can offer.

That's ok, I appreciate the response. I am looking for this same type of bottle or at least an elegant, small bottle.

I'm kind of surprised I haven't found a place that sells these new...

Paulaner is also 11.2oz. I think it's a Euro metric thing. But the Franziskaner's are 12oz.

I have a few Salvator bottles which are 11.2, but I'm looking for the style of bottle in my picture. Perhaps I'm being too picky on how I want to present this batch? LOL

Hmmm...the closest thing I can think of is those 16.9 oz (I think) bottles that have that same elegant taper to the neck, but those may be too big for your needs.

I was wondering if these metric bottles would work with the caps used in the US. It happens that I just now finished a 11.2 oz bottle of Troubadour Magma and broke out my bench capper. The cap seemed to seat properly from what I can tell. FWIW.

I appreciate the experiment. Still very surprised that no vendors sell these by the case...

Leffe is correct. Very easy label removal and the beer is pretty good as well. If your going to pay for bottles, they may as well have beer i them.
