Pros: Light Weight, Priced right
Cons: Cracks form
Recommended? NoI have had 3 of these form cracks in the bottom. Never dropped them. By the third one the common denominator was cleaning them with PBW and hot water. Not over the recomended temperture. So now I clean them with warm water. When I wrote the company with the issue I received no response.

Pros: Durable, lightweight, adequate headspace, easy to clean, not as fragile as glass. Being an industry standard means finding 3rd party accessories is very easy!
Cons: Light Permeable, can be scratched if not careful, No handle.
Recommended? YesMy 6gal. BB came as part of the "Norther Brewer - Deluxe Starter Kit". It's every bit as functional as a 6gal. glass Carboy, it just takes a gentler touch when cleaning to prolong its life. Great purchase for any beginner - intermediate brewer (even some advanced/veteran brewers still prefer them).

Pros: Light, Durable
Cons: Easily scratchable
Recommended? YesI wouldn't use anything else. My friend uses glass carboys. Lugging those full of wort up/down a flight of stairs to his basement is a PITA. The better bottles make this process a whole lot easier due to less weight. Also, if we would ever happen to drop one, there is a better chance of saving the wort.

Pros: Light weight, see-through, virtually indestructible
Cons: Somewhat difficult to clean
Recommended? YesProbably had my better bottle primary for around 6-8 brews now. Compared to my glass monster that I used to have, this puppy is far easier to transport for cleaning, etc. It is difficult to clean compared to a bucket, but there's less chance of contamination, and, did I mention, it's light-weight and easy to carry?
