Thanks in advance.
I can't comment on the rest.
I have been using 20oz bottles that I recycled from office colleagues and they are working great. I calculated that six 20oz bottles roughly equals 3.5 liters. According to Excel conversion tool, you should have about 8.5 bottles from that recipe. Just make them all the same level for 9 bottles.
I mix all of the ingredients, including the yeast(room temp water) in a large pot. Then I let it set for several minutes to hydrate the dry yeast. Then I ladle it into the bottles via the funnel. Works every time for me. In fact, I have 6 bottles on the counter carbing as I type.
