Default That's my last glass carboy

I have lifted many of these things full, and I have the handle. I always support the bottom, and mainly use the handle to position it.
But tonight, trying to dump out the sanitizer just prior to filling it with wort, it slipped, and made quite the mess.
No real damage, except to the carboy.
My shoes were soaked, glass everywhere, and I had to drill a plastic lid and press an empty bucket into service.
So, nice try, Mr. Glass Bomb, but my brew is safely fermenting, and all I have to do is sweep up a few stray shards, and that will be the last time I deal with those things.
So instead of Red Ale Bomb or something else, I was thinking of Busted Carboy Ale or you make your suggestions. Thanks!!

Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, b!tch, you knew I was a snake." - Old Indian Story from Natural Born Killers.

QFT. Just replace snake with glass and I still choose glass>plastic.

BTW I am glad to here no beer or people were injured.

Ironically, this is an Irish Red Ale. Irony can be so ironic, yeah?

Ready - Aim - Fire!!!!
Yes, up till tonight, it was no problem. Still, I have no need to scramble to find a fermentation vessel on zero notice.
If I had not had an extra grommet for the airlock, I'd be working without a net right now.
As it stands, I got a green pickle bucket with a Home Depot lid drilled out for an airlock with my Busted Carboy Irish Red ready for some Nottingham to feast on.
I bet this batch turns out super.
Just like my previous one, where the krausen somehow blocked the airlock, and the lid blew completely off. It ended up wedged between the wall and another fermenter. I washed everything off, reassembled, and prayed to the beer gods.
It is an awesome American Wheat.

This is why you have backups. I have six of the 6.5 gallon carboys with the intent of filling 3-4 at a time. Sometimes you just need to be prepared.

Since my batch is awaiting liftoff, I guess I was prepared. Now I have to get another backup ready.
