Same here! I usually ferment in a bucket, but recently bought a 6 gal carboy so I could see what was going on inside. Boy was the a mistake!
I figure as long as I can maintain temperature I'll stick with using buckets for primaries. The benefit to glass this time of year is that it's a better conductor of heat/cold than plastic, so it maintains temp better in a bath of water.
