I found a few older polls - none recent. Thanks for playing. No need to debate the benefits of any of these, that's been done to death. I'm just assessing the state of the union at this time.

I'm all glass ... Been eyeing the better bottles lately, though. It's only a matter of time until I drop one ...

Plastic "Home Depot" Primary and have both a glass carboy and a Better Bottle carboy. Definitely recommend the $4 homedepot bucket for a primary if on a budget

The Homer Bucket holds 5 gallons, which is too small for a 5 gallon batch, or do you split your 5 gallon batch into 2 buckets? Or a 10 gallon batch into 3 (which I think is too small)?

All glass for sure, I just feel its easier to sanitize. Maybe I'm wrong but it's always worked for me.
