comment Bottle Sizes Smaller than 12 Ounces?
Is it carbonated? If not then the bottle might not hold pressure. Otherwise, it looks good as long as you have a bench capper (a hand-held capper likely won't be able to grip the neck on that)

@JackSmith one tip to help prevent plastic from taking on flavors and smells is to always wash them in cold water; particularly while they're dirty

yes and no, they fill a need for those of us with space/budget constraints that prevent us from buying all the needed kegging gear.

revised Are there any particular steps to fixing a batch of beer with extra trub / hot-break, or should it settle (as best as possible) on its own?

thanks for the input; I'm hoping it turns out to be a "good" mistake--I actually did it halfway conscientously. I decided to aerate the wort in the kettle with my degasser, which really puts a lot of air in. Compared to a second batch this one is fermenting much more actively (although there are quite a few differences between the two)
