I did three of them two were carbonated and they were to be used as Growlers and and sent two of them off to the mountains with a buddy he said they held the pressure fine.

The other one:::: I got it cold, had about 2-3 inches head space, I added a bit of CO2 (20 pounds), vented it, added it again and shook it up a bit to get it into solution, added some more and let it sit, amybe added it one more time (IT WORKED)

The bottoms of the Bottles popped out on a couple of them so I stored them sideways.
Are these similar to what you used?

Yeah, this method with the chuck is still less than one carbonator cap and I get 4.
