you will thank yourself for doing this.
To really see the difference, brew a double batch. Use the EXACT same recipe, but put one in the bucket and one in the carboy. Ferment, bottle, wait.
Take a blind taste-test when the beer is ready. My friends and I did this in 1998 (after brewing three batches with just the bucket) and 4 out of 5 liked the glass fermented beer better. The 5th guy was drunk at the time of the test, and really couldn't tell any difference between the two, so he 'just picked one'.
