What sort of fermentor?
Glass? Good chance the boiling wort will cause a temp. change too extreme and it will shatter or crack.
Better Bottle? PET will melt under these temps.
Winpak? HDPE that is food grade that can handle temps in excess of boiling. Easy to clean, built in handle for carrying...
I would never recommend placing boiling wort in a glass or PET fermentor. This is why people are using the $15 Winpaks. They are more versatile than the glass or PET fermentors, and much cheaper.
