infusion question and containers

Hi, i'm planning to put up a batch of pineapple vodka and limoncello tomorrow and wondering the downside to using plastic containers. I just realized I have a huge plastic container that would be really good, but thinking it might affect the taste and that I should probably stick to glass...anyone have any experience with this? thanks
Yes, double or triple thick works good. I'm using the plastic wrap and rubber band over the top of six gallon carboys that are full of infusing fruit in neutral spirits at my distillery. Since the plastic isn't in contact with the spirits it is fine, or so I was told when I asked a food and beverage scientist. And I'm working with much higher proof spirits that are much more soluble than vodka.
