I purchased on of the Better Bottle plastic carboys. The first run with it was pretty impressive I used it for dry hopping my SNPA clone over the last couple weeks. It cleaned up very easily, and after drying out overnight, there were no residual odors or discoloration. Even the iodophor didn't cause any stains. It was so much easier to handle than my glass carboys, that I'll probably get a second one.

Did you get the racking arm & spigot option? If so, how did that perform?

No, both lhbs's had a hard time getting the carboys. I got the first one. I'd like to check one out though.

Thanks for the review. I'm considering replacing some glass carboys with these. I've always been very nervous using my glass carboys.

They would be great but at what price? Way out of my range, especially with the spigot (and that's the thing that i really want). I guess i'll wait until the price comes down. yeah right!

Is that the same as the water bottles? If so, they are very cheap.

They are not the same as water bottles.
