I just got home from my LHBS. I went to buy a Betterbottle. THey only had 6 gallons and I'm doing a 5 gallon brew. I figured that would be okay. THe lady that own the shop told me that with carboys you couldn't just put 5 gallons in a 6 gallon carboy. Why can't you if you can put 5 gallons in a 6.5 gallon bucket? you still have empty space up top between the beer and the airlock. Whats the difference? THey're also plastic vs plastic. I didn't understand. Ended up buying the 5 gallon glass one for the same price.
