I stopped by my LHBS and bought a bag of the plastic corks and some wire cages for the larger belgian beer bottles I have purchased over the months and they have worked great so far.

Does anybody have a good source for BIG champagne bottles? Like the 1.5 litre variety. How about 1.5 litre trappist bottles? That is, if they exist.

1) Not sure about the best all around capper / corker, but I like my red baron double lever cappers. They're easy to find, accept both sizes of bells, and have reversible grippers with 26mm on one side and 29mm on the other. Some of the dogfish head brews come in a champagne style bottle that requires the 26mm bell, but the 29mm grippers.

3) Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's the thin wall glass of the growler and not the lid type that makes it unsuitable for carbonating pressures.
