I have (4) Mexi 6 Gallons.  I also have 2 buckets.  I like glass-maybe the misconception that it is easier to clean?

'Cause it is NOT.  I spent a long time getting dried krausen off the dome from a wild ferment.

I am not going to buy anymore for now as I would rather get 6-8 cornies and free myself from bottling and carbination headaches.

Right now I have 5 six galloncarboys (had six, broke one last new years eve due to an alcohol induced carboy moving accident - no one was hurt but some tears were shed), 2 five gallon carboys and 2 working buckets. Lots of junk buckets. And, yes, there are times when every one of them is full.  :)

That is the key, how many are actually in use at any given time?  Well, I am filling a couple today.... :)

I have two 5-gal glass carboys, and two 3-gal better bottles.  I used to have two 6-gal better bottles, but both cracked along the bottom, coincidentally within a week of each other.
So good once it hits your lips!
