LandoLincoln was right on the money in the 2nd post of this thread! 60 posts?!
Might as well throw in my 2 cents...I ferment in plastic then age in glass.

I guess all I did earlier was play around, so here's what I do. I like buckets! BIG open head for actually being able to clean the damn things. Yes they are plastic which can scratch, but be careful. I have 8 running right now and never seem to have enough room! I do still have three glass carboys. 2, 6 and one 3 gal. Right now I have a PTE small batch in and the other two wine. They look cool, and it's fun to see the progress. But damn they are heavy a PITA to clean, you can't bang them together. I just like buckets better all around.

Err. I mean the bathtub...

I have both, the only thing I dont like about the better bottles is that if you touch them they can burp and suck fluid back into the carboy from the airloc, and they melt if you set them in front of a woodstove to dry out!! WVMJ
