Default 1 gallon carboy pos

Went to swirl my starter (which is only 24hrs old) and my pinkie finger cracked and put a dime sized hole in my 1 gallon carboy! The cut on my finger is the least of my worries, i just hope my yeast will be ok?! I sprayed star san over everthing then patched hole with foil to get by.. Luckily it cracked above krausen but still. Im not happy! Just had rant a bit

Sounds like you may want to invest in a more robust 1gallon carboy... I would think you would have a hard time cracking one of those gallon wine jugs.

I guess so. It looked fine, and felt hefty.

There are TONS of horror story threads on here about broken carboys. I hate when I run out of FV's and have to use on of my glass carboys. Glad to hear the injury wasn't too serious. Are you brewing a red IPA? I am sure there are a lot of good names for the brew to be had there.

Wait . . . I'm still having trouble with you putting a hole in the side of a one gallon jug with your finger.

If I were you, I'd be using plastic cups or only drinking your beer from a can.

What, swirling your starter has never resulted in that?

You need to work on your manly handshake.

Or something.

No kidding right. I was actually drinking from a can the night it happened! Was weird. When I was swirling the airlock was bubbling like crazy when it cracked/made hole.. could pressure inside jug been a factor?

Under pressure?


Do you do strong (ale) man competitions?
