Hello brewers this is my first post. I have never brewed before but I’m very excited to give it a shot. I am looking at buying the Deluxe kit to get started with the Slobber recipe. I noticed on retailmenot a $20 gift certificate applied to next purchase as a promo (promo code). I figure once I make my purchase I’ll use it down the road to get a recipe kit or something.
I was looking in the comment rating on the deluxe kit and a guy said he wished he had held out to buy because soon the kit will be offered with a free burner as a promo or something. I was wondering if anyone else has any knowledge of any such thing?
Also as far as going glass or plastic on the carboy does it really make a difference on quality of the batch? What is the upshot on glass vs plastic? Is it like the grocery store when they say paper or plastic and it just some kinda preference thing.
Lastly I really am not into investing into glass bottles I have enough of my own here for more than a 5 gallon batch. These are commercial brown glass, non twist off bottles of course I will sanitize that should fly right?
