I hate when that happens.

I found glass 5 gallon jugs at "Kitchen & Company" in New Churchman's Road in Christiana Delaware. I think it's a chain store.

I got mine for $12.99.

BTW, first post... hello all!

My local HBS has glass carboys for no more than $27 for a 6.5 gallon one, and has several size gradients below that for a little less. If I went with glass, I would go for the 6.5 gallon. The additional cost is only a couple of bucks.

If / when you do get glass, the 5's are actually more convenient for secondary purposes. 6.5 certainly for your primary though.

I'll take whatever I can get. I have a hodge podge of carboys ranging from 5 to 6.5 gallons. The 6.5 are old kind that they used to use for transporting sulfuric acid. The 5-6 gallon ones are your standard run of the mill carboys.

Plastic, Glass and, Stainless steel all have their merits. iThe reality of it is, in the end what really matters is what works best for you within your budget in your brewery.
