Is it really that bad to carry a full glass carboy buy the handle?

Are you talking about a 1 gallon carboy with built in handles or a 5 gallon carboy with a carboy carrier around the neck?

Please be careful how you answer, we're looking for "Darwin" nominees.

If you have a 5+ gallon carboy and a carboy carrier for the neck I suggest you read the literature supplied with it or speak to you retail for recommended use.

Gotta love google.
Takes less time than typing the question.

ETYMOLOGY: 18c: from Persian qaraba glass flagon.

I mean ask google and it tells you.

The word Carboy is derived from the Persian word qaraba (glass flagon).

A Flag pole is what you put a Flagon.

Don't make me go all EAC on you.

get a brew hauler other similar device

it's basically nylon webbing with handles that the carboy sits in.



NB and other places sell them and they aren't very expensive
