    If they're pet use them....but most of them are polycarbonate NOT PET or PETE. Polycarbonate
    uses BPA (bisphenol-A) in it's production. BPA may mimic the natural female sex hormone

    I just checked the Deep Rock Jugs here in the office....They say "PET Approved for Drinking
    Water"Does this mean that I just got a nearly unlimited supply of primary fermentors for the

    Maybe not corn but Hop acerage world wide has decreased significantly over the last decadeYou
    are correct but it has nothing to do with corn. With the advent of hop storage technologies the

    #7 plastic uses a grab bag of plastics to manufacture a bottle, there's no way to tell what you
    are getting with respect to O2 permeability. You have chosen to gamble with that and it appears

    The risk of oxygen permeability is very real. It has to deal with the chemistry of the polymer
    in the plastic.Or in the words of Ron Burgundy, "It's Science.":fro:I have looked at the O2
    permeability ...

    Just ordered a kit yesterday from homebrewers.com and i can't wait for it to get here to start
    brewing. The kit I ordered is coming with a plastic carboy but people have been telling me that
    glass is ...
