D'oh! That stinks - better luck (and maybe a better bottle) next time.

Wow! I never thought chilling it like that would bust the carboy. Did you go from hot wort into carboy directly to ice bath? Or did you bonk the carboy into something a bit while it was chilling?

Sorry for the loss

Wow. That sucks.
It's sad to see the carboy gone, but real sad to see a beer go so young...
So, is a chiller on your short list now?
