I know it smarts but worse has happened. At least you didn't drop your carboy when it was full like someone I know.... (now that's a tragedy)

get off of here and get brewing
I'm doing and all grain version of my Miami Weisse today (with raspberries)

I used a bucket with a spigot for my Fat Tire clone and it was fine for the first 3 weeks, but I had to move it and when I went to bottle the batch I discovered that it had leaked a half gallon

I'll never use a bottling bucket for a primary again!
