And this is the reason why I uses a wheeled cart for moving my fermentors -_-

Sorry for your loss

I'm worried when I handle them empty! Never used a brew hauler or carboy handle. I keep mine in a round plastic tub. Hopefully a thread will not pop up about my plastic tubs! Glad nobody was injured.

Only problem I had with the BrewHauler is it growing mold when left in the fermentation cooler after a blow off.

I would say sorry for your loss, but this is a great chance for you to upgrade to latest in brewing technology. BetterBottles for the win.

glad you were not huirt. I've always used milk crates because I'm too cheap to purchase something else. I got the creates a long time ago, and when I got into brewing it was a natural to repurpose them for my carboys.

Wow that is nuts. Glad you didn't get hurt.

My starter kit came with plastic buckets. I was going to get a glass carboy with the neck handle until I read people on here saying the neck can break with those. Then I was looking at those haulers. I'm glad I bought extra buckets instead of that glass carboy after reading some of the posts in this thread.

Milk crates seem like a great idea...though you might want to check those too because the plastic can get weak over time. Milk companies use those thousand of times and I have seen some break with just the weight of milk in them.

People with carboys should go get one of those baby holders. The ones you strap your baby to your back like a backpack lol Those should be perfect. If one of those breaks with a carboy in it, I hope someone notifies the company because a lot of parents are going to be pissed lol

Would a furniture dolly work ? I was in Home Depot and I saw one for less than $20. It would seem to be more flexible too since it would transport more than just a carboy

Really? We're going to do this AGAIN?

There's only two negatives I can think of.

1) They're heavier.
2) They're made of glass that can break and hurt you.

Positives:

1) They'll theoretically last a heck of a lot longer than plastic.
2) You can scrub them with brushes.
3) They're impervious to infections.
4) They come in bigger sizes than plastic ones.
5) The bottoms don't buckle when you move them and disturb the trub.

I just cut the #%*! out of my right hand last week on a glass carboy. As I have stated before. "Some of the best lessons we learn are self taught". Lesson learned. Better bottle via amazon is on it's way. I just like watching the show. I don't like the haulers either.

Your Positives are a joke. I scrub my Better Bottles with brushes and no infections here.

Now back to driving my pre-1963 car with no seat belts to my house with asbestos insulation and lead paint.
