I've heard it said, and read it too, that one should not yeast carbonate using glass bottles (as due to bottle bombs).
I'm wondering if anyone has documented the flavor differences that could occur in a batch using glass vs. using plastic (petn) bottles? Out of curiosity my friend and I both brew and I use the PETN bottles because of my budget and he uses glass because he is a soda snob.
Needless to say that he and I can brew pretty much identical batches using the same yeast packet, same water, same sugars, and same extracts. The only real noticeable difference will be in flavor. His glass bottled brew always tastes better than mine. The only thing we can come up with is that glass somehow yields a better taste because of maybe sanitization or some other unseen phenomenon.
Any insights or comments would be greatly appreciated here.
