So here's my story

My buddy and I have been brewing for about 1 year together. He has been doing about 2 years longer and got me into it. Now I hope some can top this it will make me feel better but my buddy just has a bad accident.

I was at his place bottling my ipa and after that he transferred his old Rasputin clone. When he was bringing his secondary down to his basement I heard " f*** I just lost all my beer I just lost all my beer " so naturally I'm worried. So he comes up the stares holding his wrist saying " it's bad real bad ".

When he set his carboy down it broke slicing his wrist. I had to call the ambulance while his wife helped him cover the wound. His wrist had about a 2" cut write under his hand and he said " I can see the bone ". So they showed up and took him to the closest hospital and he is there now. This happened only about 1 hour ago. I'm still shook up. He has done this a hundred times before. So now I'm hopping he's ok and can still use his hand. So everyone BE CAREFUL with those carboys because my buddy always is and this was a freak accident!!

Sorry about your friend. I hope he recovers fully and quickly.

This is just one more example of why I'm too chicken to own glass carboys.

Sorry to hear about your friend - I don't have any glass over 1 gal - heavy and risky.

Now get rid of your glass carboys. No matter how careful, it takes so little to have a disaster.

Wish your friend a full and fast recovery. I love my plastic carboys and buckets.
