So I have heard horror stories about broken glass carboys, and a lot of you have the scares to show for it. I don't know if I have found the solution, but this is something that I have come up with. I was in my local hardware store looking for some laquor (to protect some labels) and found some "Plasti Dip". THis is marketed as the plastic/rubber material on tool handles. My thought was to put on bottom of the carboy to help protect it against bumping. I took wide masking tape and marked off where I wanted the plasti dip to go (I only wanted tht bottom so I could still see the trub). I then sprayed the plasti dip on the bottom. I let dried, and repeated a few times. The color I found was black, but I suppose they make more.
Don't know if this will work, but I figure I will give it a try and I thought I would pass it on.
