The yeast don't care....It's all about what YOU prefer.

I use plastic.

I have never used glass and plastic works great. I dont have anything against glass though. After reading about breakage and seeing many scars from folks including people I know personally, I opted for plastic. It just seemed safer especially considering I have young children. And like what Revvy said, I really dont think the yeast or the beer really care's either way!
