Default Finally broke a carboy...

I just killed my 6.5, it was the first carboy I bought back in 1996 when I picked up the hobby back in San Diego.

She will be missed...


Collateral damage.


At the very least I need 4 stitches probably 5 but its 11pm, I've been drinking, and crazy glue and kleenex made for a fine patch job

That's probably for the best, you don't want dirty monkeys around an open wound

So, the question is... will it be replaced with glass or BB?

Yeah, I'm going to give those BB a try. I think I got lucky only getting a few cuts.

time to get a handle. they really come in handy. i've dropped 3 carboys. only one broke, but it was enough. nothing like cleaning glass off the bathroom floor.

Yeah, I have handles and still don't trust them. What sucks about breaking this one is that I had it on the sink, it was draining and when I took a hand off to grab a tube to put up the bottle neck to get air in so it would to flow faster is when it slipped forward and thunked the bottom of the sink. My hand just kind of fell in with all the breakage.

On the up side, 98% of the mess was contained in the sink so no mop was involved.

Now SWMBO is freaked out and wants me to stop brewing, and pitched a bitch about the 4 carboys I have in the back bathroom (its dark and holds a nice 68*) and is worried about my boys getting hurt by them.

I didn't realize she had issue with my hobby.

Gosh I'll miss her...
