so you use glass to ferment? Can i use a 5 gal plastic jug to Ferment?

You can. The typical starter kit uses all food-grade plastic buckets - one for fermenting, one for bottling.

Just make sure you leave sufficient head space. You don't want your blow-off valve to be in the liquid.

I bought a kit this weekend, But i was wondering it i could have rigged up something myself...
plus i wanted to start off with a small batch maybe 2 - 2 1/2 gal.

Not really. It needs to be bigger than 5 gallons to allow for a krausen (head that forms). Most brewer kits have 6.5 gallon pails that they lable up to 5 gallons.
