Great, thanks for all the input. I'm planning to lower it down to lager temps pretty slowly so
hopefully there shouldn't be any problem with shattering.

Hey...I hope this doesn't turn into another long glass vs. bucket vs. better bottle thread, but
my specific question is can I lager at 33-35F in a glass carboy without fear of it breaking

Here's a follow-up question just out of curiosity...if you use a hop bag to filter it before

I just brewed an Amarillo Amber Ale kit from my LHBS. The recipe gives an original gravity of
