I'm looking for a place to buy or recycle these kind of bottles. It doesn't seem to exist around here!!

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, these are champagne bottle size.

Jeroboam = 3 liters (known as Double Magnum)
Réhoboam = 4.5 liters
Matuselah = 6 liters

Good luck. I can't imagine what it would cost to get them new. Sure would be freaking cool to have homebrew in a giant bottle though. I've been to one party where a 9l St Feulliean was served. It was a hoot.

Oh, that is the next one, called a ''Salmanazar''.

I'm not really looking for new bottles, I know it would be way too expensive and probably un-findable. I would just like to get a couple of them... to show of in parties!

Well... what about simple Magnum (1.5L), is it findable?

Actually, I was thinking that you might act a bit proactively and CALL the vendor to find their source.

I wasn't proactive yesterday late in the night.. this morning, it seems logic to be, ahah. Sorry about that, and thank you.

Edit: Well, they answered me that (like almost any US suppliers), they don't ship outside country. Thanks anyway

I found a few 3L on eBay for around 50$ ea. Shipping to Canada might be a problem. A friend just dropped off about a case of standards and 3 magnums. A friend of his has been on a mimosa kick and he raided their recycling for me.
