Last night I blew up my first carboy trying to starsan the inside. Scared the... you know what out of me. I immediately looked at my hands for cuts, but I lucked out. So, now I'm refusing to buy a glass carboy to replace my 6.5. I've looked at the Speidels today and the better bottles and trying to decide which way to go... If Speidel was in stock I would probably order. Not much more that the glass carboy was; in my case this is purchasing another, so its cheaper. I know the argument on plastic buckets, but for some reason I just don't care for that option. Any other suggestions?
