    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
    (b/c of temp...

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

    Thanks guys, that helps. I'm still a rookie, but I haven't brewed since last fall. I'm making

    Yeah, I've got one, my main question was about knowing that the final gravity you measure is
    what it's supposed to be.

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