Default 40oz for bottling, or anything larger then 22 ?

I have about 5 gallons of blueberry/apple cider which has bottom out at about .95 and it smell like rocket fule and is so tart it makes your lips pucket just sipping at it, i want to doctor it in sevral differnt ways and leave it bottled for sevral months, i also dont want to tie up alot of bottles... I did the math and 16 40oz bottles would bottle the whole batch and i could modify each 40oz seprately. Now short of buying 16 bottls of cheap as 2$ malt liquor and dumping it down the drain (because i would rather drink goat piss).... but that is spending 32$ on bottles when i could easily buy two boxes of 22oz for 16$ or 2 of 12oz for 10$.... but it would take far more time and i would have to doctor the bottles seprately... etc etc... so does anybody know where i could buy a box of 40oz's or maybe some pressure proof growlers 1/2 or 1 gallon???

Cheers

You could buy two of these:

Welcome to MR.BEER® - MR.BEER® Deluxe Bottling System


Or go ghetto 10 2-liters of soda. Green Mountain Dew would get you looking like euro-trash!!!

You could by two cases of New Belgium Fat Tire. Invite buddies over to drink them or hit up the local bar who sell them. You get the empties for pennies, deposit only...

Safer to get seltzer water. The caps can carry soda-roma.

Problem solved. Buy some bottle caps and some cheap store brand 2 liter club soda.

Done and done for about 10 bucks.

The other one that comes to mind is Carta Blanca or something like that.

And champagne bottles, while we're at it.
