I was just stating my considerations. I have various fermenters including plastic buckets and they make fine beer.

Perhaps some are, especially these days, but I wasn't assuming the original poster was on a "short budget" or any other new brewer either.

As far as a secondary necessarily being fragile there are better bottles, plastic and steel conicals, corny kegs, and of course glass. So, secondaries aren't intrinsically fragile.

BTW I found a Carboy on my local Craigslist yesterday the guy said he left it dirty after last brew session so he was only asking $15. I guess he didn't feel like cleaning it. Not necessarily expensive either I guess.
