So I was thinking about how much of a pain cleaning and sanitizing carboys can be and thought of an idea… thick, food grade plastic bags to line the inside of the fermentors. If pulled off of a roll, I’m sure that the inside of the bag would be pretty darn close to sterile. Other benefits would be: worry free use of non-food grade containers, use of scratchable/scratched plastic buckets, and super easy cleanup. Obviously, depending on the application, this may not be suitable for long term storage, but I rarely ever bulk age in a fermentor anyway.
Anyone ever do this? I’d love to hear some criticism before I give this a try.
