Pros: Glass and so far easy to clean.
Cons: Get transport straps vs. neck handles. Two handed carry much safer.
Recommended? YesBought 2 used glass 5-gallon carboys for secondaries. Also got the brew hauler straps for transport.

Pros: Cheap old glass water jug with a wooden carrying crate
Recommended? YesThe clear carboy is easy to clean, and fun roll down grassy hills. There are lots of grassy hills that I roll my carboy down. It's a great way to aerate my wort before fastballing my yeast

Pros: Glass has no smell or taste and is air tight.
Cons: Susceptible to breakage
Recommended? YesBought a 5 gallon for my primary and a 3 gallon (I brew 3 gallon batches) for my secondary. I like the traditional glass. Just makes me feel like an artisan.

Pros: Glass is sanitary. Good size for long-term aging.
Cons: Glass is dangerous. Too small for primary.
Recommended? YesI use 5 gallon size for long-term secondary aging of sours. It's nice to fill up to the top and remove air space.
