Don't think of Better-Bottle carboys as plastic - think of them as better than glass, because they are made from a special, scientifically tested, type of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which does not have the disadvantages that make other plastics unacceptable for fermenting wine or beer.
Be sure to order the racking valve required for this ported carboy.
Special PET has negligible oxygen permeability and no tastes or odor are imparted into your wine or beer. Better Bottles meet FDA requirements with and have a Kosher statement. Better Bottles are xceptionally stain resistant , smooth, non-porous, non-absorbing, and the hydrophobic surface does not carry over flavors (flavor scalping) and soaks clean without brushing. Better Bottles have superior resistance to cleaning and sanitizing agents.
Designed for Convenience, Better-Bottle carboys are unbreakable, extremely light weight (about 1.5 lbs [~0.68 Kg]), and designed with textured grip ribs, so they are safe to use, easy to handle, and inexpensive to ship. They are also easy to store away when they are not in use. Their injection molded necks are wide, so filling is convenient; uniform, so a variety of closures fit consistently; and extra strong, so handles can be attached. All Better-Bottle carboys are available plain or ported for use with Better-Bottle Racking Adapters and quick-disconnect High-Flow valves, which eliminate the need for siphons and make oxygen-free racking simple.
