Plastic Carboy Problem
 
1 Attachment(s)

Well, apparently adding hot wort to a plastic carboy is not advisable.

As can be seen, it seems to have been warped.

Now, I have no problem buying another carboy(im switching to glass), but this incident has begged me to ask two questions:
1. Are you not supposed to add the wort to your carboy when it is hot?

and

2. Will the warping of the plastic have released any chemicals into the wort which would affect the quality of my beer? I do not want to drink anything that tastes like plastic, however the wort for this beer tasted great. It would be a tremendous shame if I had to dump.
