Last night, my mom sent me an email about our brewing processes. It was the best email I’ve ever gotten from her. (Mom, if you’re r ading this, that’s not true.)
Just read Jeff’s blog about the plastic buckets. I would switch to glass. Plastic tends to hold flavors in them and you can’t wash them out. The yeast may be staying in the plastic.
You know, that’s my professional brewer’s opinion!
We actually came to the same conclusion, independent from above “professional brewer’s opinion.” Jeff purchased a few glass carboys from Bob the Brewmaster yesterday before brewing three consecutive batches of beer (more on that later). Fortunately for us, Jeff resisted Bob’s attempts to upsell us cheap plastic handles for the carboys. I am so thankful that we have a brewmaster capable of saying no to a cheap, efficient way to carry precious gallons of beer in fragile glass containers.
