- $5.49 for 1 gallon glass jug ($20.00 for case of 4)
- $29.99 for 5 gallon PET
- $44.99 for 5 gallon glass carboy
(BTW, would you be so kind as to enlighten me, or point me towards a link, discussing pros and cons of glass versus PET?)
So yeah, really not saving a significant amount of money... but like I said, I'm kind of just curious if such a thing (racking into 5 separate secondaries) would be a horrible idea for any readily identifiable reasons, so I understand the mechanics of the process better.
Also I can see a benefit to having a crap-ton of 1 gallon glass containers sitting around, for small experimental batches, etc... on the other hand, if I have a 5 gallon carboy for secondary and I decide to rack a second time, I kind of need another 5 gallon carboy sitting empty. (Contrast to the difficulty of racking 5 separate gallons into tertiary, especially if I only have one extra -- I can imagine the hassle of clean, sanitize, rack, rotate, clean, sanitize, rack, rotate, etc, etc, etc... LOL)
Sorry, I realize I'm being a horrible PITA. I'm just trying to get my head around the various options. (I was the type of kid who couldn't just be told not to put my finger in the electrical socket. You had to explain conductivity of electricity and its affect at varying voltages on living tissues in high levels of detail, or else I was just going to stick my finger in there to see what would happen.)
