Never tried PET, but I am a glass man myself. I am a leg man too

Only thing I'm going to say good about PET is that's the way to go if you have bottle bombs. Otherwise, I prefer glass as more durable, sanitize easier.

Unless you are heat sterilizing, then I believe that plastic is actually easier. The only thing that causes problems is that scratches will render the plastic useless. Consequently, you cannot use a bottle brush to clean the bottles. Luckily, PET does not build up hydrophillic films on it's surface like glass does, so it is quite easy to simply rinse it out. No scrubbing required.

Default PET bottles are fun!

I speak with absolutely no experience, as I am still drinking my first batch of kit beer (which is still green, incidentally. ) The Coopers kit that I received for my birthday came with 30 700(ish)mL PET bottles and caps. I found them to be very easy to bottle into, and the caps are simple to put on. They don't break, and I'm under the impression that if I rinse them after use and sterilize them before my next bottling that I should be ok. I'm planning on purchasing another 30 when the batch I have brewing is finished. Are there any real advantages in moving to glass? I'm far from a purist, and as a few have pointed out here, I'm not going to drink straight from the bottle anyway (or at least not until I'm way too drunk to taste the beer.)
