Plastic fermeter (plastic smell)
Hello all,

I'm about to do my first batch of home brew. I bought two plastic fermenting buckets at my LHBS and the insides smell like new plastic. I was wondering if I had to break them in before I put a beer in there to get rid of the plastic smell or just toss the beer in thanks.

Just clean and sanitize them and you'll be fine. After the first batch, they will permanently smell like beer.
