Just curious on the pro's and con's of the PET fermentation buckets vs the glass carboy. Is one really better than the other or is it just personal preference? Do you get "off" flavors from one or the other? etc...

They're both good, it's really personal preference.

My suggestion of a search first was to help the OP.

2 options:

1. Post this question and wait at least a few hours for one or several people to helpfully post their idea of the right answer to the question.

2. Search the board and immediately find quite a few preexisting discussions presenting many different opinions on the topic.
