i dont know if you can avoid the sparklies. just let them settle and pour off the liquid carefully or siphon it off. one of those sun tea glass jugs with a plastic spigot at the bottom would be perfect. i keep looking at garage sales. dont worry about them, though. they cant get out of your gi tract so they will just go out with the flow, in case you do swallow them.
