Default I'm switching to Better Bottles GRAPHIC

After me being a dumbass forced me to spend my day in the ER getting 13 stitches, I've decided I'm too stupid for glass and need to switch to plastic.






















Pictures to follow.

Jeez, you did all this for the attention? Seriously, glad it wasn't worse. That's just scary. I've only used plastic in the last decade. I don't know if I can even lift glass anymore and don't want to try.
And, those pictures don't make the glass look as thick as I remembered mine from the 80's. Guess they really don't make em like they used to.

Not for the attention at all. Believe me, I am not a happy camper right now. Just figured I'd share... and for those of you who don't buy the broken carboy "horror" stories (like me).

It was surprising how easily it broke. Admittedly I was being a dumbass but it happens.

I'm looking for pony kegs for primary. Only downside is not seeing the beer ferment.

I was debating whether to buy glass or plastic for my secondary. My mind is now made up...
