I use a smokers jacket. It keeps my carboy cool in so many ways.

Now THAT, eschatz... That is one classy carboy. You need to get him some Playboy bunnies to keep him company, and maybe some matching slippers?

All 3 of you could sit around in smoking jackets, and talk Pacific Rim economy.
"Oh oh stop it, stop it. Look here you can't be a bloody fiscal hermit crab every time the N-K goes self correction! Asia's economy has nowhere to go but up."
"Interesting."
"Indeed."

NNatic,

I use brown paper grocery bags over my carboys. Cut a 3 inch diameter hole in the center of the bottom of the bag for the neck and airlock. Slips on and off easy, keeps the light out, write the beer details on the bag. Stores flat and is reusable. What could be better?

Family Guy?

Yeah, I give my beer the royal treatment... Maybe I need some monogrammed smokers jackets. CB1, CB2,... (CarBoy 1..) Maybe I should make a Hugh Hefeweizen...
