Good points about both BB and glass on this thread.
Within reason, I'm not too put off by the "Anti-Glass Nazi's" or those of any other topic ... I'm just looking for good, reasoned thinking. People having divergent opinions contributes to the process as long as they are civil.

The better bottle arguments Are filled with holes like Swiss cheese!
People keep talking about weight... Have any of you guys tried picking up an empty glass carboy? A kid could do it....
Now add about 6 gallons of juice. Probably weighs just a tad more then a better bottle with 6 gallons of juice. Now throw one of those nylon carboy carrier straps on it... Voilà!
To my knowledge a better bottle does not have straps on it does it... Or put the glass carboy in a milk crate, DONE DEAL KIDS

BB's are just cheap plastic that can harbor old odors and bacteria....
They scratch up. If you ever get a bacterial infection in the thing you have to throw it away. As easy to move when they're full as my glass carboys, As easy to move when they're empty as my glass carboys....

And the fact that will crush all others: Nine out of 10 hot brew chicks will pick glass! Lol

I can take a better bottle, hold it by the neck and turn it upside down over my sink and use the sink spray to rinse it after I soak it in oxyclean. I can't do that with a glass carboy. If I should happen to drop my better bottle on the granite counter top there is no danger of breaking the bottle or damaging my counter top. I cannot do that with glass.

You can close the thread now

Wait, not yet.... I have held the glass upside down over my sink and clean them out one handed no prob, As a matter of fact I have done that every time.
This discussion I think will go on until the end of time... it's like the Ford/Chevy thing...

For every person who has a reason why a better bottle is better than my glass carboy I will have an answer for them on why they are incorrect &
For every reason that I come up with on why a glass carboy is better some better bottle lover will try to contraire my mon frere...

P.s. And for all the better bottle fans out there, This weekend I am going to go to the homebrew supply store and buy a better bottle So I can use it as a porta potty on my next camping trip.

Ok, I've had my fun now...

Because BB's are a product that is designed to wear out over time and be disposed of. The glass carboys are not designed with failure in mind.

And then while they were having their pissing contest, Asian took the market right out of their fat, greedy hands with superior products at lower price points. :\

Superior products at lower price points?
I don't think the Japanese make the better bottle carboy. If any Asians are producing things at a lower price point I think that would be Chinese.
Not known for producing superior products.
