So, in my dining room with the nice blinds and chairs and table and some stupid white table runner, what ever the hell that is, sits one of my primarys. A nice pale ale sitting at an OG of 1.046 and a pitched tube with no starter of 001 califonia ale yeast.

I get a call from my wife who was surprisingly calm saying, "what do you plan to do with your beer in the dining room". I say "well i dont know drink it". she says "how about all of it that is on the ceiling, the table the runner the blinds the floor the chairs"

forgot the damn blow off tube son of a bit*&^$%^ B&*$&* I*Y$#* *&*$#^&^& *&*(&* %%@#@#@ .....................crap!

My SWMBO would have slit my throat for that. For just PUTTING a carboy in the dining room, I'd expect harsh treatment.

Good luck man - I think you're going to need it.

Uh oh -- if she is calm, that is when they are most dangerous. You had better come home with flowers and a gift card to go shopping with...

Why do we ferment in carboys ?! I did a wine last weekend and it frothed all over the floor. Why didn't I use a bucket ? I have 2 perfectly good buckets waiting for something and I used a friggin carboy and made a mess.

I'm never fermenting in a carboy again.

Reverend JC,
You have to go to sleep some time. LOL

I keep my full primary and secondary fermenters in my dining room too. I also had a volcano the last time I brewed. I'm just glad it was on Saturday and I caught it just in time.

I'm in agreement with brewman. I'm not going to use a carboy as a primary anymore.

I am still having a hard time understanding why you feel a bucket is necessarily superior to a carboy. Is it that there is more headspace, and that this reduces the risk of blow-overs? If so, try a bigger carboy. And to be more precise, you should say "I am never fermenting in a small fermenter again!". All this prejudicial talk about carboys is making me sad.
