I started out using a bucket.
Then moved to a glass carboy, till it broke.
Then bought a couple Better Bottles. I have been using them for a few years and they do work just fine.
Recently I bought a bucket, because I wanted an easy way to top crop yeast, and might start using them for all my beers.
They are inexpensive, easy to clean, easy to move around, and easy to add dry hops or top crop yeast.
