Mine's carbonated as well, so either Grolsch or Fischer swingtops, or this past batch i did in champagne bottles capped with normal crown caps using a bench capper. Much less bottles to use as they're 1.5L..so less time bottling.

this is what i was thinking. I may just do a few in 22 oz. bottles as well and those are the ones I will let age for months and months.

I know there is a thread around somewhere, but cant find it at the moment, is it only american champagne and wine bottles that accept crown caps?

Some in champagne bottles, some in beer bottles. The stuff I left still I put into sanitized wine bottles and jammed a cork in there without even using a corker.

Since I carbonate mine, I tend to use old martinelli's bottles. They are really cheap and available around the holidays so I just stock up then.

EDIT: I must also note that you have to use a bench capper, which is a very worth while investment.
