Just did a mink and a 'coon using Krowtan in a 3 gallon glass container - no problem.
Chemical test tubes are made from glass, there are very few things we can purchase that will react to glass. Think about it, what containers were available before the plastic generation.
The reason the instructions call for plastic is becase most people already have a few plastic buckets or totes already in their shop Idont know about anybody else but large glass containers dont last as long around me and plastics a lot cheaper.Another reason it calls for plastic is so you wont use a metal can or bucket the minerals in the metals may react badly with the tan,and the acids will eat it up.
Didn't think it would cause any trouble but wanted to make sure.
Alum will not react with any one of these 3 types of containers! They would do just fine. Actually any one of them will also work fine with almost all tanning agents!
