This question appears to be off-topic because it cannot be answered by a specific verifiable answer without subjectivity and matters of personal preference.

comment Aging lambic beer
Beginner brewer and Lambic is one heckuva ambitious goal! Can you elaborate on your recipes for your two batches, specifically your yeast selection, aging process/schedule and any significant details?

It's not getting nearly the (negative) hype that the glass one is getting, mostly because it isn't sending folks to the E.R., but the amazon reviews for it are scarce and not too positive either. Two things mentioned are inconsistent thickness in the plastic, and the inability to get a good seal with the lid. I also recall hearing one person saying he had to purchase extra seals for it in order to get it to seal properly.

After seeing their correspondence with homebrewers, I see no sign of them slowing down. They're continuing to market the heck out of this. It's very unfortunate that it will likely take a lawsuit to cover someone's medical bills or to recoup damages in order for them to take this seriously.

Count your blessings. Many have gone to the ER for shattered carboys.

There's been a lot of (supposedly impartial) studies done by the plastic carboy companies that claim that there is little to no difference between glass and plastics as far as final quality of beer. oxygen permeation was surprising since the most permeable part has little to do with the carboy itself, but the lid/bung seal and the plastic airlock.
