Larger bottles are USUALLY fine with regular caps. Sometimes there's a grolsch top, or sometimes there's a cork. If you're interested, and you have the caps/capper on hand, just try it and find out.

Just think how easy a 5-gallon bottle will be.

They have one it's called a keg!

When bottling in larger bottles, does any adjustment need to be made in the amount of head space in the bottle?

Thanks.

I've left roughly the same amount of headspace and it's been fine. Also, all my large bottles have been better than my smaller bottles, maybe they've conditioned better? I don't know.

Thanks for the reply. I just bottled my second batch, and decided to use a few recycled 22oz-ers and a champagne bottle. I went with the "bottle wand always gives perfect head space" philosophy I've seen in a few other posts, so if this yields anything less than ideal results, I'll update.
