Do you think a thick denim jacket for the carboy would work?

Infuse it with resin and it will/should.

I would imagine that the same technology that kids use to drop an egg from 4 feet without breaking would be necessary.

Any of the methods I see would work for an empty carboy, but not for a full one.

At worst, the better methods will contain the shards. I believe that's the OP's goal here. Not to prevent it from breaking, but make it so that he won't get killed by a shard from the breaking.

You evil bastard!!!!

That is like going into a thread called "How do I make my chicken Bulletproof?" and saying that you switched cast iron safes to hold your chicken feed!

That is a debate for another time!!

I am personally not too worried about the lethality of H2O. Lol.

Try Reynolds turkey bags for bucket liners and your world will NEVER be the same again!

Anyone see the thread on BOILING in a bucket?

I accused them of being insane, but everyone else seemed fine with it.
