There is a warning on Better Bottle PET carboys that says not to exceed 140 F, so I would definitely say no.

Absolutely no... i made the mistake of putting water at about 145-150 degrees in my better bottle and it shrank and warped.

Def NO. PET isn't designed to take hot liquids at all. It melts & warps. Saw this in the Cooper's forums. Even some tap hot water temps are too high over time.
