Does Your Fermenter Affect Your Beer?

A commercial recipe was brewed and then split between an array of fermeters to see if the choice of fermeter had any effect on the finished beer. Plastic buckets, glass carboys, corny kegs and small SS conicals are compared to the 15 barrel SS commercial unitank the beer is normally fermented in. Depending on results, Phil hopes to repeat the experiment in San Diego and let the attendees taste a couple of examples.
