Default I drunkenly bought a better bottle online last night, question:

What size stopper will plug the hole? Is it the standard #7 or is it a different size. I somehow only bought the bottle and not the stopper/airlock, but I stand by my purchases whether or not I really remember making them.

The key to drunken purchasing is being drunk enough to not remember! Then it's like christmas!

From the Better Bottle web site:

A number of commercially available 55mm caps and #10 rubber stoppers will fit Better-Bottle carboys

+1 on #10 stopper

I just got a 5 gallon Better Bottle a few weeks ago with a #10 stopper. It fits so far As long as you don't shrink your better bottle then it should work.

The shrinking comes from really hot temperatures right? Like boiling water or wort. Its not gonna mysteriously shrink otherwise right?

As long as there are no evil mad scientists around with shrink rays you should be good.

I couldn't find the temp it takes to melt on on the BB web site, but I think they will withstand heat up to around 160F. If you exceede that you risk melting/shrinking one.

Yeah, it looks like the max temperature is 140 degrees Fahrenheit. That's considerably lower than ale pails from what I have read. As long as you don't brew as drunk as you were when you bought it, you should be able to remember :P
