Happened a little over a year ago...
No blow-off tube + rabbits + overeager Nottingham = wet, drunk pets.

I probably shouldn't put my credit card statement in a public forum.

I posted this in another thread but I lost 5 gal of barleywine and a glass carboy in one shot. Worst part is that it was on carpet and the clean up took 5 days.

Don't have a picture... But once i had a great brew day... Everything went swimingly... Got the beer cooled down to like 65 degrees, the wort tasted great... Into the ferm bucket, carrying into the kitchen to the ferm closet... Put the bucket down, oops, some wort must have jumped out... Better wipe that up! Wait, more... Let me pick up the bucket... SWOOSH... The bottom of the bucket fell out, dumping 5 gallons of potentially the greatest beer in the world onto my kitchen floor

That sounds awful! one time I put boiling cider into a plastic container and it... melted.

I've done a similar deal. Glad to hear I'm not alone here.

Broke my 5 gallon fermenter tonight full of a cream ale 5 minutes after I put it in...

5 hours wasted but a valuable lesson learned...

A Belgian white on the left, Christmas ale on the right. Both were a little vigorous as you can tell
