looking at buying my first kit and was checking out midwestsupplies.com they seem to have a pretty nice kit with the option of better bottles or glass carboys.
just curious what is the advantage of each and what do you guys think is better.
thanks in advance, i tried to search first but couldn't really find any info.

Better Bottles are lighter, won't break, and have a spigot option - they get my vote every time!

I just got their kit with the Better Bottles and have been very happy with them. I wish i would have got the spigot option but it wasnt avaliable with the kit or i didnt see it when i bought mine. I plan to add another 6 gal. to my brewing lineup in the near future. Better Bottles get my vote also. Glass carboys are heavy and hard to handle.

Better Bottles are good but don't use a brush or anything the least bit abrasive on them. I'm getting one next week.
