For a second there I thought they sewed your toes together.

Cheezy, you are one tactful dude. I'd never use a bucket, but that's me. Better bottles FTW.

Since my little carboy incident, I've gone to Sanke kegs. Virtually indestructible, no light gets in, I can use CO2 pressure to transfer, and the best part, steam sanitization.

Nuff said...

Glass aside, BB's and carboys are a PITA to clean.

Rip open a bucket, hose it out, sanitize, nuff said.

If you are still needing to "see" fermentation, knock yourself out.

No matter how many times you say this it won't make it true.

Soak in oxyclean for a few days in the sun and everything melts away. I like how glass smells new after every clean, unlike plastic.

............OK Harry Potter.

Since my wand is in the shop and I must wash with water and stuff, you are funny.

Bucket = BIG OPENING

Carboy/bb = tiny opening.

Also my little cleaning fairies are in the shop.

I will agree that glas cleans up better and prettier.

I hate to drink out of plastic, so I agree, but the breakable (especially sh!tty if filled with beer) and the PITA (unless your hands are MUCH smaller than mine) to clean make it a no brainer.
