++SS Brew BucketI use SS Brew Buckets. I realize the cost is somewhat prohibitive, but I'm done with plastic. Scratches are no longer a concern and the ability to maintain positive pressure into the fermentor prevents the chance of introducing oxygen to the wort when cold crashing and racking.
I have one that I've used now a couple of times. A real pleasure and when I need to move it, I don't get that feeling of impending doom that I get when I move my glass carboys. I like being able to get the beer out without using a siphon.
I'm going to continue using glass carboys, but I have a few new rules: I ALWAYS put on pair of work gloves before handling them (I bought a pair specifically for this and keep them in the brewery) and I keep them all in milk crates.
I also got into an SSBrewTech conical and that thing is awesome. Of course, I dedicate a used freezer conversion for temp ctl, but having done that, I can do anything I want with the fermentation including ramp and lagering.
