Year round? OK, or possibly crack/weaken due to temperature change?

I have 5 glass carboys in my attic when not in use...no problems. They really don't get warmer than a hot water wash, (n spite of the perception to our own skin), nor colder than a refrigerator.

glass will crack when there is a sudden change in temperature or pressure, as in a big drop or increase. yours should be fine in a shed. it will heat up and cool off with the ambient air temperature. Cover the opening with something to prevent critters getting in.

I also keep my in the attic in the garage. I just make sure to bring them inside a day or so before I brew to let them warm up slowly.

Find some old milk crates.. set the carboy in the crate then turn another crate upside down over the top of it.. stack the next one right on top.. Stuff the neck with paper towels. As was said before , for some reason mice like to get in em.
