I saw that Midwest is advertising a new plastic version of the Big Mouth Bubbler in the latest BYO issue. I know a lot of people were asking for the Big Mouth to be made in plastic and it looks like they listened. These plastic Bubblers appear to be taller and more narrow than the glass version. As long as they're not too tall this might be a nice feature to fit multiple fermenters inside a fermentation chamber.

I primarily use Better Bottles so this new plastic Big Mouth Bubbler has caught my interest. I haven't seen it show up on any of the online retail sites yet.

Interested as well depending on price. I switched from glass to buckets since I have to carry my wort from the garage downstairs through a finished basement.

This would be fantastic! I am afraid of the glass ones for some reason but I've wanted one all the same.

you guys don't worry about scratching the plastic and getting bacteria in the scratches?
I switched to all glass for that reason?

but i saw that too right when i was getting ready to buy a glass big mouth - now i don't know which way to go...

Not at all. If you scratch a Better Bottle or the newer varieties you are doing something wrong in the cleaning process. I am close to 3 years and have no intention of retiring any of mine.

Carboy brushes are a no-no. A soak in Oxyclean then rinse, insert a washcloth and swirl, rinse more and done. It takes longest to fill with water/Oxyclean. Rinsing takes about 10 minutes.

I will never own glass because, IMO, it is far to risky.

I switched to buckets after I had 2 better bottles that would not come clean no matter what I soaked in there.

I would be interested in these if the price is reasonable.
