Brewing a 5.5 gallon batch of Two-Fisted Tales IPA from Tuxedo Park Brewers last night. Everything was going amazing! One of those nights when the moon and stars align and you hit all you numbers and it just goes smooth! Had a very experience brewing buddy helping me out. Pitched the yeast into my 6 gallon carboy picked it up to aerate and mix...BOOM
!! I now have a multiple piece carboy and 5.5 gallons a great beer all over the garage floor!!
Either I hit the carboy on the zipper of my jacket or the carboy was flawed. I like to think the later but most likely it was the zipper. I couldn't sleep at all last night I was so upset about losing the beer.
The question: Should I move toward the Better Bottle or stay with the glass carboy?
Merely looking for opinions, I have found a few very helpful posts that have given great information.
