Pros: Lightweight, durable
Cons: No cons, just minor concerns
Recommended? YesCleaning krausen residue is a bit tricky. I won't stick a carboy brush in it, because I don't want to chance scratching it. So hot water, PBW or oxyclean, and about a half cup of bleach goes in, instead. After standing for about an hour, it has all disappeared. Rinse well, and I'm happy. My biggest concern is remembering to empty it of all cleansers in a timely fashion. You do not want to leave cleaning solutions in these for more than 24 hours. Chemicals WILL deteriorate the plastic, and cause it to crack if left inside for days at a time.
They make large rubber bungs, so you don't need to buy the expensive plastic stuff that is made specifically for these.
I'm very happy with my 3 Better Bottles, and would not hesitate to buy more of them when I need additional space.

Pros: light weight and easy to move
Cons: None at this time
Recommended? YesI bought a few of these after having a few mishaps with my glass carboys (screaming wife and glass every where in the kitchen). So I figured I would give the better bottles a chance. I don't worry too much about dropping this carboy. It's light weight and very easy to move around, my only concern is how it will stand up overtime. If your looking to replace your glass carboys for various reason, I would say look no further.
