I made batches on 2 liter PET bottles which ended OK. I did not even boil every time. And I used poked ballons too
But I have to admit that some batches tasted bad in the end, so to be on the safe side I would also try to sanitize as much as possible.
BTW I would recommend making larger batches, because on 2 liters you lose quite a lot of mead because of the sediments.
