Default 12 gallon pyrex? Brag alert.

I was at the LHBS to grab a quickie, grain and yeast for a hef, typical day in the neighborhood.

On my way out the door I saw a beautiful - abet a little worn looking - 12 gallon glass pyrex cayboy - for sale - handmade sign - $49.

*gasp*

A quick phone call to SWMBO was made and now I am a proud father.

I am amazed how pricy pyrex carboys retail! Time to start exploring batches > 6 gal.

12 gals seem fun until I think about trying to move one full of wort.

I've eyed that carboy quite a few times at the same LHBS - the price has been dropping - I think it was $69 a few weeks ago.

Congrats and enjoy.

I prefer tits or GTFO but that's not the focus of this forum unfortunately.
