Anyone know any site that will ship some Pliny bottles? Or a growler of younger in February ?

Why cold crash if you're bottle conditioning? I've never bottled before but if I did I think I'd just ferment out and then bottle, leaving enough yeast in suspension to eat up the priming sugar. If you're worried about clarity, won't the yeast just settle out in the bottom of the bottles when you put them in the fridge?
As far as doing it without oxidation, you've seen the way I keg. Why not bottle the same way with a CO2 push (unless you already sold your CO2 bottle). I use a ported carboy cap with a small pickup tube going down into the carboy, a tube going out, and another tube going in the second port on the cap pushing CO2. Then just have someone capping them for you, or add a racking cane with a check valve so you can stop the flow when you need to. You'll just have to push at a low enough pressure to be able to stop it when you need to. I vote for having somebody come from the other side of town to help you cap. Just wish I could think of someone
Half a gallon loss? Sounds extreme.
FYI if you use lock nuts for the burner mounting bolts, the plastic piece inside will melt. I'd suggest spring nuts stripped of the spring, which is probably what you did Justin.I would have used lock washers, what are spring nuts?
I believe spring-nuts are specific to the strut system. They are just what they sound like, a nut (rectangular in this case) that has an integral spring that holds the nut in place in the strut channel.
I would have used lock washers also.
How did you attach the burners?
