eh. I can't read the license plate on the car.

Seriously, that's some nice clean beer. I just ordered 2 6-gallon Winpaks this evening, and I can't wait to try them out.

No front license plates in IN.

It is nice, it is clean...

No chill isnt for everyone, but this is one less thing for some to worry about.

Is there some reason everyone likes the winpaks for the no-chill? What's wrong with just putting the stuff directly in the fermenter?

Nothing as long as you're careful. When the wort cools, all of the air surrounding it will contract. If you have an airlock on your fermenter, it will suck that liquid into the wort. I personally stick a nice long hose through the airlock grommet and into a blow-off bucket. No temperature-related contraction is going to suck liquid all the way up the tube. Some people just cork the airlock grommet with something until it's cooled. Also, you probably don't want to store the wort for any real length of time in a fermenter with a lot of head space, but I get the idea that's not your intention.

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.
