Default Thank god I spent $2.99......

So I am so glad that I spent the little bit of money on an over 6 gallon container. Glass carboy shattered and the pic explains it all. Reracked in a bucket and hoping for the best.

Looks like a bunch of wort sitting in it's own filth. Please explain what happened and what you did to save it. Me confused!

So, you re racked the wort from a shattered GLASS carboy? I would be concerned about tiny glass slivers in the final product.

Glass would be heavier than wort.

Not that I am saying it is a good idea..

I would do it

How?What? Why? Damaged and discounted? I would have thought about of restraining it,reboiling it and repitching it,depending how clean that basket was.

Just another reason a plastic bucket is my preference for fermentation.
