Anybody ever use this brand of plastic carboy? If so, how do they hold up compared to Better Bottles.

Looks to me like it is a better bottle just with a different name:) probably works just as well too!

As i understand it NB and Midwest are related somehow, between the two of them they have a lot of cloat to have their own productys produced.  I think you are right, its probably just a better bottle with their sticker on it.

Yeah, they merged last year (I think?).  +1 to the BB with a different sticker on it.
