The Mityvac comes with the nipple piece I would need? And how much do these things sell around for. Thanks that sounds awesome.

Some do, some do not. I got the "kit" that came with several different items. The kit I bought goes for around $50.00, although they may have went up since mine was purchased. Here is the kit I bought: http://www.amazon.com/Mity-Vac-Mv850.../dp/B002B4LOC6

Oo I was just thinking I probably couldn't do that with a plastic better bottle. It'll probably cave in before it gets to 25psi

If your better bottle is topped up to the neck, you could. If it's got some head space, then probably not.

I just got a mityvac and love it. The one I got was $31. I didn't get the elite version since this is the only thing I use it on. Out of all the little end things that came with it, there was one that fit perfectly in the bung hole (insert Beavis laugh here). I have my carboy in my office where it is warm and I am usually parked so I kept the pressure between 15 & 20 for a couple hours. I was amazed the next day I could see a flashlight through a cab. I whipped the $%!& out of it with a drill and couldn't see anything through the murk. They got me believing. I just checked eBay and there are some there for even less. Not sure the quality or reliability though.
