Using Better Bottles makes the old carboy-brush relatively useless since the plastic is susceptible to scratching. While PBW mostly eliminates fermentation build-up on the inside of the Better Bottle, I've had two instances where a chemical clean was not good enough. I needed to attach a small rag to my lees stirrer to gently rub away the stubborn gunk that PBW was unable to remove. Perhaps this would be a better solution for every cleaning!?
