Now, can we pressure you into a little bit of patience?

You'll have a much, MUCH better product doing this the right way, and giving it enough time. You'll have something to get you buzzed that's also pretty high quality.

Ouch $25 for a 3 - gallon carboy? You can get 5 gal glass carboys at the swap meet for $4 each. Or a new one for around $20.

I am assuming that nothing else came with the carboy or did that price include shipping?

Depends on where you buy it. My last 5 gallon was $23, I think, at the HBS. My 3s were $20, I think. Don't always have the luxury of waiting for a garage sale or for something to show up on Craigslist.
