hahaha Well I've been spending my two weeks of winter break trying to track down a glass carboy without buying one.

Some interesting info just published on the Better Bottle site about the oxygen permeability of various closures. Also a table on various materials at bottom of doc.

I'd lend you one of mine, but Google maps says it is a 1700 mile drive to your location. The gas money alone would buy you 3 or 4 glass carboys! lol
