I am finally looking to retire my plastic bucket primary. I've had it a
long time, though much of that time I was not brewing. It has picked up
some aromas over the years from beers I've made and I cannot get them out.
I tend to make high grav beers and I've seen glass primarys from 6-7.5
gallons. Which is better to pursue?

The larger the better - if you don't want blow off.

Re: which size carboy


My preferance would be to get another plastic pail for the primary
fermentator -- inexpensive, easier and safer to handle than glass and if you
get the 7.5 gal bucket you can make wine as well.

I have a sad story of a friend, a galss carboy, a slip on a wet floor and 22
stiches.  I am replacing all my carbouys over time with Better Bottle
products -- much lighter, almost indestructible and safer.

Good luck.
