Working clean is working clean, glass or plastic. Good cleaning works with either.

HTH.
If we are talking about something left in the bucket, then I would think a bucket is easier to clean out than a bottle because I can actually reach into a bucket with a sponge and wipe away anything that might be left in there. Can't do that with a bottle.

Wow, how did this thread turn into yet another plastic vs glass argument?

oh, I see. tallgirl maybe you are new to the forum, but we really don't need to rehash this again. You can do a search and find hundreds of threads that go over this from every possible angle. It is IMPOSSIBLE for you to bring something new to the argument at this point.

Contaminated batches come form poor cleaning and sanitation, not plastic. If you can't clean a bucket maybe you should pick up knitting instead.

I use a plastic Mr. Beer fermenter for 2 gallon batches. I don't use the valve on it and I bottle form another plastic bucket (frankly, a valve on a fermenter just scares me). That way I can measure out exact amounts to get the level of carbonation I want and I can boil the priming solution.
