nothing is better then long term bluk aging then glass carboys... but they are heavy and have no handels... I prefer plastic carboys... they clean easier, they have handels, they are lighter, etc etc... But i have some glass just for bulk aging and long term fermenting... Sorry about the tub, glad your ok.
