Do you have a bottling bucket? Bulk priming is way easier. More even than bottle by bottle. With bulk priming,bottle size becomes irrelevant.

Union is right . . . if possible, you want to prime all of your beer together . .. on top of being easier, it also means even carbonation across your bottles . . . whereas if you tried to prime each bottle separately, you'd see slight differences in the level of carbonation in each bottle.

Have you checked out our bottling sticky? It will help your bottling process to go smoothly, and explain things.

Did you look at the bottling sticky I linked? I describe the process in there.
