I have read the discussions on plastic carboys and purchased a PET for clarifying. I was drinking some gatorade the other day and I noticed the 1 gallon bottle is quite nice: heavy gage, PET and handle. Could you use 5 of theses as a secondary? Would there be any adverse effects by splitting the batch 1/5 before secondary conditioning?
