I just bought a 1 gallon jug from my LHBS for 5 bucks. It's got a slightly concave bottom, which makes it harder to use my stir plate (still works, though), but if you are just going to be shaking every hour, I would recommend this instead of paying outrageous amounts of money for Erlenmeyers. The jug is equivalent to a 3500 ml Erlenmeyer.
