Well i was talking to my dad about getting a carboy and what he thought about it, you know with other options like better bottles and plastic buckets. It's kind of a hard decision to make.
I saw a pretty good deal on craigslist for 15 bucks for two 6.5 gallon ones. But the guy hasn't gotten back to me so i'm not to hopeful. Anyway he sent this back and i think the question has a lot of merit.
I am thinking about buying a 2 gal carboy to use to filter my beer before bottling. Unfortunately, if I remember right you aren’t supposed to do that because it like gets air in the beer or something with is bad for some reasons (I think it ruins carbonation and can make the beer go bad).
I've heard of something called "purging" or something? where you use co2 right? I'm not 100% on this anyone know if it's possible? it'd make bottling easier if we had a small bottling bucket, priming sugar and all.
