Thanks for the support all!

To answer the questions, it's marked brc 3008 mexican I think? Never put hot fluids in above 90-100f. I've had it for a year used about ten times. And no not a curse word more like a loud yelling noise I didn't know I could make followed by "CALL 911! Get the tourniquet!"

Damn - that is horrible. I got lucky when I dropped my carboy and it just shattered into a million tiny pieces. Hope you have a successful recovery and are back to brewing.

Maybe it's just me but that bolded part reads like that wasn't the first time you have had to shout those words. Of course it could be from the fact I don't know of anyone that just has a tourniquet ready.

Dang! I was rinsing my 5 gallon one out the other day after bottling my Dundalk, and it slipped in my hand over the kitchen sink. It was about 2 inches above the edge of the sink, and it bounced off the stainless steel but did not shatter. I managed to grab it, but boy did it make my heart jump a few beats. I've seen others injuries from carboy breakage on here, and I make a point of always wearing heavy work boots when handling. Feeling the need to switch to all plastic buckets, or some better bottles. Recover fast, and don't pop your stitches. (I've done that. NOT FUN)

Holy cow! That is a fearsome injury. I'm so sorry you had to endure THAT pain. I hope it heals completely and quickly.

Makes me very glad we ONLY use plastic carboys and a Speidel.

VERY scary! Wow. And I come from a medical office background. Not sure if I'd have made it through somebody walking in the door with THAT injury!

I hope you heal well and quickly. That is precisely why I will never own a glass carboy!

Duuuuuuuude! I was shown stuff like that to prepare me for the real world in my emt classes! I always try to catch things when they slip. I'm guessing that was your reaction as well. Thanks for the pic, now swmbo will not only ok New BB's, she'll probably order them herself.

Heal fast... You have beer to brew!
