Hi Matt.  Figuring about 800 to 1000pf per bottle, and all of them
connected in series it would seem that you would need about six bottles,
give or take a bottle to approach your desired capacitance. There can be
a lot of variables involved with bottle caps but they work well, and are
fairly consistent in capacitance value when properly made.   Al.
