I recently stumbled upon a PCTG plastic container with a spigot that I figured would be nice for homebrewing. I usually use a glass carboy and have 2 that I actively use but bought some of these
containers to try them out.
I think Better Bottles and other plastic brewing containers use PETG, and the cursory research I did about PCTG indicates that it's similar to PETG in chemical properties. However, I found absolutely nothing on whether or not it's safe for storing alcohol beverages. I used one of the containers to brew mead, and I'm concerned about the plastic being soluble with the alcohol, or leeching undesirable chemicals.
Thoughts on PCTG?
Thanks for your time.
