I got a Carboy new, and there are a whole bunch of horrizontal lines around the carboy. My hand runs smooth across the glass. I figure if its a crack, I would feel it. So is it just imperfections?

It would help if we could see pictures.

If cleaned with OxyClean or something similar, carboy brushes can leave lines of residue that don't rinse off in anything but a StarSan soak. I've had that happen. As a result, I OxyClean first, and then rinse with StarSan to break down the residue...

All of my carboys have those lines around the neck. I've used them many times with no problems.
