Broke a carboy.  WELL, THAT SUCKS!!!!!!

 

Nothing like watching $40.00 of Pilsner sheet across your garage floor.

6.5 Gal. acid carboy.  date on bottom "1994".  Second 6.5 that's broke in the last year.  First one was heat stressed.  Forgot to turn on the water to the counter flow chiller. 

 

Still, I wonder if the 6.5's aren't more fragile than the 6 gallon ones.  Anyone have an opinion?
