I put mine on a dolly and wrap with a strap. At the worst, it jostles a little, but no more than it would carrying it.

Thanks for sharing! It is nice to come across a gem like this as I'm browsing the forum this morning. Any tricks for making this?

OP, Thanks for the warning, I always wondered how effective those were.

[QUOTE=Topher79;4717679However, I didn't count on my second brew hauler breaking as I was hauling a 6 gallon carboy full of $70 worth of ingreidents (partial mash) for an Imperial Oatmeal Stout! ![/QUOTE]

$70 of ingredients in a 5-5.5 gallon batch?

You say partial mash, so assuming about 3# of grain (conservative) at $2/lb = $6
Yeast = $10 (high estimate)
Hops: Lets go with 4oz at $2/oz = $8

That leaves $46 in extract? Looks like over 10lbs of extract? Man! Glad you reminded me of why I switched to all-grain.

Regarding the actual topic though.....I have one of those and I have never actually used it because I don't trust it. I'd rather trust my dry hands. One under the bottom and one around the neck (Hmmmmm, kinda reminded me of something)

I can't believe it broke a strap. I've got one that goes unused (along with the glass carboys I kept "just because") because I decided a bucket was a hell of a lot easier to clean, sterilize and carry. It's ugly and not as cool but I don't rack to secondary anymore either.

What size was the carboy?
