Default 29*F lagering in glass carboy with 8+%abv beer

Anyone have success lagering a high abv beer below freezing without breaking a carboy?

Well, in theory, it should freeze at 24 degrees. But that's in theory, and not in glass in my fridge! I'd definitely try to keep it at 32 degrees, just in case!
