When using glass carboys and especially during the clean up at the end of a brew day, it pays to have not over indulged.....As much as I enjoy a beer or three during brewing, I have a healthy respect for glass. Drunky Monkey brewing and slippery soapy heavy carboys are a bad combo.
Perhaps I will go to a conical down the road but right now I am using glass because I like the results with low oxygen transfers, and that is what I have. Pale ales and IPAs are much better with this approach. My plastic BMBs are the oldest version and there probably is a hack to replace those terrible lids but I'm getting good results with glass......as long as I keep a death grip on those glass carboys.
I still will use the BMBs with beers to be bottled.
