Sand the edge, put a light in it and hang over the bar.

I agree with Mongrel. and at least it was in the sink & not full of beer in a closet!

Another reason I don't use glass, just imagine the tidal wave of wort if that thing cut loose while full...no thanks!

IMO, you got lucky that thing retired itself early and in a nice tidy manor.

I have heard that some of the cleaners like PBR or Oxy degrade the glass. I think I saw a thread on it, and a guy at our homebrew club meeting had the same experience. Or maybe that was the plastic better bottles?

14 years and hundreds of gallons in the same glass with no problems...


lets not turn this into another "Glass is bad, m'kay?" thread. too many already exist.

Wow - you are lucky it happened the way it did. Glad you were not moving it when that happened.

Did it go from cold to hot, or perhaps it had a hairline crack in it from being bumped or something. I don't think PBW or Oxy would be the problem if everything else was ok... Seems unlikely to me. Either way - count your lucky stars.

I'm glad there was no beer or blood loss.
+1 turning it into a lamp.

It's only 2 months old.

I'm to early in the brew hobby to shy away from glass.

Luckily I got in on some plastic PET deals so I'm not without.

I'll probably call AHB and see what they say, maybe they will replace it.
