So I fermented a Saison, with White Labs 565. It is my understanding that this yeast strain has a touch of Brett i it. Would you never ferment another Ale/Non Brett Beer in these carboys? I spaced it until I was at the homebrew shop talking to the boys. One of them brought up how I switched all of my 8 Primaries to plastic, I brought up the Saison, and one thing led to another. I am thinking right now that I now have 2 BB Carboys that are my new Sour/Saison Primaries. Wat's your opinion? Think I'd be safe fermenting an Ale in these Carboys?

The rule of thumb is any plastic piece of equipment that a sour has touched now becomes your sour equipment, this would of course include a plastic carboy. Mark it as such and keep it separate. To much of a chance that you will start to cross contaminate your "clean" brews.

I disagree with you on this. Why take the chance.

Thanks for the replies. I am going with what my gut here, and it says do not let anything but a sour touch tha carboy. So it looks like I need to buy 2 more BB 6 gallon carboys.
