I can't see any reason it would in the short term. It may leach some Chems from the plastic but who isn't gonna get cancer? Try googling alcohol safe plastic bottles?

Do not give up hope just whip up the must every 6-10 hours and it should start up eventually.
Its bubbling nicely today without even having aerated it. Doing as well as my banana wine from two days before.

Glad top hear it is working. Also interesting to know you did not aerate it. I always do aerate my SP 2 - 3 times a day the first few days. I figured it helped but yours did not seem to take too awfully long to get going. Here is to a happy ferment.

It would work just fine...get some pet bottles.

I use cleaned and sanitized Vitamin Water bottles with no problem. Father in law drinks a boatload of the stuff and saves the bottles for me. Never had an issue but the skeeter pee isn't in there more than a couple months.

Lbussy, hook your gas line up to the out post. Crack the lid and bubble some co2 through your pee. That has helped clear sulphur from some of mine in the past.
